The 2021 Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival in Clearwater has been canceled due to COVID-19.

"Unfortunately, due to the current restrictions on large gatherings, the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival is unable to take place in April," Lisa Chandler, Sugar Sand Festival founder and organizer said. "We will continue to keep you informed and look forward to creating another sandtastic' event in 2022."

Last year the festival lasted 17 days and featured 1,000 tons of sand.
