The Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce sponsors the 46th annual Sandcastle Day June 19. View sea monsters emerging from the deep, glorious castles and imaginative creatures as builders from around the country converge on the beach to prove their skills. From the elementary to the professional, all enjoy this event, whether sculpting or viewing.

Only natural materials, such as seaweed, sticks, shells or rocks may be used for ornamentation. Contestants are organized into divisions by age, individual or team, and type of building implements used.
