Our first annual Atlantis RIsing International Sand Sculpture Competition will take place on October 7-10, 2022 (Columbus Day Weekend) at Misquamicut State Beach in Westerly. For four days the shores of Misquamicut Beach will be transformed into the mythical city of Atlantis. There will be artists from all over the world competing for a cash prize and you can see them at work carving sculptures out of sand and vote for your favorite. Food trucks, live music, special photo opps and activities for the kids will keep the whole family entertained. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.

Three teaser sculptures have been installed in different locations around South County to promote the event. Already the media is buzzing with news about the event in October. Go on a little scavenger hunt if you're visiting South County this summer and see all three!
