Festival: January 23 - 27, 2019


Held in January each year at Hokitika beach, participants are invited to express themselves using beach-finds. 

Budding artists work side by side with professionals turning driftwood and other materials they find on the beach into sculptural pieces. 

All you need to bring is some imagination.

So come along and create something beautiful for others to enjoy.

This year Mother Nature has gently requested that we reposition ourselves slightly south - this year's Driftwood & Sand will be based at Sunset Point! Click here for more details on the move.

Our caravan and gazebo will be located at the Tambo Shipwreck Memorial for registrations (from Wednesday morning) and voting (from Friday).
