Sand sculpture festival from Scheveningen to Zandvoort


This video is called Sand Sculpture Festival Scheveningen 1991.

According to Dutch regional TV Omroep West, after 21 years the World Sand Sculpture Festival will move from Scheveningen, the seaside part of The Hague city, to Zandvoort, more to the north.

Financial cutbacks, which hurt art in many countries, mean that The Hague local authority now only wants to subsidize events like the Sand Sculpture Festival if at least 70% of the money comes from private sponsors. As private sponsors are cutting back now as well, the festival has decided to move to Zandvoort, where local authority rules on financing events are less restrictive.
