Beyond the Sand Arts Festival

Beyond the Sand (formerly known as Sand Safari Arts Festival) will transform Surfers Paradise into a beachfront gallery of colour, movement and music across nine spectacular days and nights from the 13 - 21 March 2021.
The free multi-medium arts festival will showcase large‐scale, bold works from gallery to the beach, highlighting an incredible calibre of national and international artists. From contemporary to abstract one of a kind and even feature installations and entertainment, this festival creates a diverse showcase of art and culture across a variety of mediums.
The 2021 event will be circus-themed offering entertainment for the entire family. Featuring the annual Australian Sand Sculpting Championships, installations from local and nationally acclaimed artists, as well as daily circus performances, roving entertainment, sand art activities and sculpting workshops, attendees will be able to ‘step right up’ and learn new skills from performers and artists.
