Yarmouth Sand Sculpture Trail is coming back in 2023, bigger and better than ever!
Nationally renowned artist and sculptor, Sean Fitzpatrick, will once again delight Yarmouth locals and visitors with dozens of his unique and super-creative sand sculptures.
They're all over the town of Yarmouth.
You'll see them along Rt. 28 on the south side of town, on Rt. 6A on the north side, and at a few spots in between. There's one at the rest area on the Mid-Cape Highway, too.

When is the best time to tour Yarmouth's sand sculpture trail? The short answer is: all summer long.
Sean normally starts working on the sculptures in mid-May, and he puts the finishing touches on the last one by late June.
If you're here during that time, keep an eye out for Sean at work around town. It's fascinating to watch as he brings a big pile of sand to life!
How long do his works of sand art stay in place? Much longer than you might imagine!
Thanks to the special materials and techniques used to build them, the sculptures are incredibly durable.
Unless they're accidentally damaged or intentionally vandalized (gladly, that doesn't happen very often!), the sculptures stay intact from the time they're created, all the way through to Columbus Day in October. :-)
While you're touring the trail, be sure to snap a few pics for the photo contest!
Prizes are awarded for the best photo in categories including Most Creative, Best Selfie, and Best Location.
* Important *
Each sculpture is finished with a very thin (invisible) protective coating made from Elmer's glue and water.
If the coating layer is broken, moisture will seep into the cracks. And that's the beginning of the end for the sculpture. :-(
Please, please, please ... don't touch!
Enjoy Your Tour of the Yarmouth Sand Sculpture Trail
and Good Luck in the Photo Contest!
