“Sand Globe” East Bay Beach Festival (Albany)

Sunday, October 8, 2023 - 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm | Cost: FREE*
*Arrive Anytime!

Albany Beach, South End | 2 Buchanan Street, Albany, CA

Event Details

Join in to create & play with sand globes and each other! Making sand globes from moist sand and water is easy– and it feels like magic! Someone said, “It’s like making a sand castle in the air.”
At this event, environmental artist Zach Pine will teach everyone to make sand globes. It takes just 5 minutes for your first one! We’ll use sand globes to make spontaneous, evolving, and ephemeral creations together, play cooperative sand globe games like “pass the peas,” learn to catch and juggle sand globes, and aim to break the world record for largest sand globe (a bit bigger than a basketball).
Sand globe creativity and playfulness are spreading over the earth through the project Sand Globes Worldwide ( https://www.sandglobes.org/ ). See more worldwide photos and follow on Instagram ( https://www.instagram.com/sandglobes/ ).
By design, the event offers opportunities for everyone to participate and join in however they wish. Our site at the south end of the beach is paved, and our activities will be in that area and the adjacent sandy area, and we’ll provide tabletop surfaces as needed. Restrooms are also wheelchair accessible.
Parking is limited, so carpooling and biking are encouraged. Public transportation can only get you to San Pablo Avenue and Buchanan Street, 1.2 miles away.
