Mark your calendars for August 13th because it’s going to be a beach bash like no other!

Since 1923, the Sandcastle Challenge has been the ultimate traditional family event in Knokke-Heist. This year, we’re taking it to the next level for the 100th anniversary of the Belfius Zoute Sandcastle Challenge at the RiverWoods Beach Club.

For this special occasion…

The Belfius Zoute Sandcastle Challenge celebrates its centenary 🎂

We wanted to mark this milestone by preparing something special, something unprecedented. Therefore, we decided to stick to tradition by organizing the usual sandcastle competition, but in addition to that, we have planned a whole series of family activities afterwards! We invite you more than ever to stay after the prize-giving to enjoy the magnificent setting of the River Woods Beach Club, but also to take part in a photo exhibition that retraces the different editions of this legendary Belfius Zoute Sandcastle Challenge. There will also be face-painting workshops for children, kite-making animations, ice cream stalls, the venue of a Guinness Record holder Philippe Bourleau and many other surprises!

The goal? Build the sturdiest sandcastle in 30 minutes that will resist the rising tide as long as possible. It’s all about teamwork, creativity, and of course, a little bit of competitive spirit.

Relive the excitement of last year’s Belfius Zoute Sandcastle Challenge with our epic aftermovie! Watch families and friends come together to build the sturdiest sandcastles on River Woods Beach Club. Get inspired for the 100th anniversary celebration on August 13th, 2023 – it’s more than just a tradition, it’s an unforgettable experience!

Get ready to join 1.000 sandcastle challengers, young and young at heart, in teams of 10, to battle it out and build the most impressive sandcastles ever. It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be friendly, and we promise there will be no sore losers allowed – only fair play and good vibes!

The Belfius Zoute Sandcastle Challenge is perfect for all generations, so bring your family, friends, and even your grandma. And don’t forget to dress up in your beachy best, because the prize ceremony is going to be as legendary as the sandcastles themselves. Trust us, you won’t want to miss this epic celebration!
