SEPTEMBER 7, 2019!



 The Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce (RBDBCC) is pleased to host the 40th Annual Sandcastle Contest on Saturday, September 7, 2019. All skill levels are welcome - fun for the whole family!  Teams and individuals of all ages will express their artistic flare in the sand on Rehoboth Beach. The contest will be held on the beach off of Delaware Avenue in front of Funland. Spectators are invited to vote for their favorite creations and join in on the fun with kids craft activities and a community sandcastle.

RBDBCC Business Members are encouraged to compete in the business category, represent your company in the sand!  The winning business will receive a trophy and bragging rights for the entire year!

The Rules:
Participants will be divided into four divisions: Business, Adult (15 and older), Youth (7-14), and Smiley division (children 6 and under).
There is no limit to the number of participants per team.
Piles of sand must be formed by manpower only. Mechanical assistance is not allowed.
To be judged, creations must be built within event “feather” flag boundaries (on the beach in front of Funland between Delaware and Laurel Avenues)
The sand sculptures may contain only objects natural to the beach (shells, stones, seaweed, etc.) Participants must stay away from the dunes and dune grass. The use of food coloring is prohibited.
Sculptures may not be dampened or sprayed with any solutions other than water. In other words: NO STICKY STUFF!
