Marketing Partners

Since 2011, we’ve had a succession of marketing partners who’ve helped make the U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge and Dimensional Art Exposition possible. They have helped our event, the community and our associated kids educational charities, and we have helped them promote their initiatives and services, and sample their products to as many as 200,000 Southern Californians every year. Each entity’s participation helps the other reach its objectives; hence we use the term ‘partners’, rather than sponsors.

We especially thank our title partner, the Port of San Diego, our stage partner, the San Diego Union-Tribune, kid zone partner, MTS, and our very good neighbor downtown, Bumble Bee Seafoods – they’ve been with us throughout the years.

Thanks to all of the companies and brands below who’ve participated with us. If you are interested in a partnership for 2020, please contact us here ….

USSSC + DAE is cancelled.

It was our great honor to have produced this iconic event for 8 years.  USA Today had named it to the ‘Top 10 in the Nation’ and American Express called it ‘one of the top 20 seaside festivals in the world’.

Hundreds of millions of media impressions were registered worldwide and over 40,000 attended the festivities each year on the downtown San Diego embarcadero. 

We thank the Master Sand Artists from Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas who created magnificent sculptures from nothing more than sand and water, as well as the artists who work in other media, the entertainers, food providers, sponsors, media, staff, suppliers, volunteers and the Port of San Diego who made the event possible.

Should a title sponsor or new production company wish to bring it back to benefit local non-profits and the Southern California community at large, we will endeavor to help advise as long as we are able. 

For now, enjoy the website from years past.*

Thank you once more.
