The Community Castle is free and open to anyone to drop in and experience building a sandcastle! Youth, adults, experienced builders, and aspiring architects are all welcome. It's a great place for all members of your family to get involved and there are no time commitments, so you can stop by for any length of time. All sandcastle building tools are supplied by Leap so all you need to bring is yourself!

The Community Castle is lead by volunteers and members of Leap's Sandcastle Committee who will help manage the build process. The castle design will be based off of a scale model reflecting this year's theme.

The Community Castle is located at site #15, right down the center isle of the Sandcastle Classic off the main stage. All donations received at the Community Castle support Leap and our arts education programs in schools across the Bay Area.

About

About the Sandcastle Classic:

This year marks the 36th annual year of the Sandcastle Classic, the biggest sandcastle competition in Northern California.

Teams typically comprised of architects, engineers, contractors, designers, corporations, and local elementary school students work together to build giant sand sculptures. The funds raised by teams and sponsors make it possible for Leap to continue to provide arts programs to Bay Area students.


  • Thousands of people attend Leap’s annual Sandcastle Classic, which is free to the community.
  • The event is covered by regional print and online media, and celebrity judges evaluate the final sand sculptures.
  • More than 25 local schools and 300 donating companies and advertisers participate.
  • In 2017, the top team raised over $55,000.
  • This year, we’re accepting a maximum of 30 teams. Sign up early to reserve your spot!
About Leap:

Leap was established in 1979 in response to severe budget cuts in arts programs in California schools. These cuts continue to affect arts education in our schools today, and the need for high-quality arts programs is now greater than ever. Leap’s programs place professional teaching artists in classrooms to work with grades K-5. Every year, these educational programs—in music, dance, theatre, creative writing, visual arts, and architecture—serve over 8,000 students in more than 30 elementary schools throughout the Bay Area.
