Sand Sculptures in the Village:
Stories in Sand
FREE at Peddler’s Village… all summer long!
Marvel at larger-than-life sand sculptures that celebrate favorite stories! Free and open to the public from June through August, Stories in Sand will showcase six exceptionally tall sculptures created by three world-renowned master sand sculptors. The spectacular sculptures, all of which are due to be completed by June 9 (weather depending), will pay homage to stories and characters revered for generations: Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Peter Pan, The Jungle Book, Winnie-the-Pooh, Mother Goose stories, and Alice in Wonderland. Children can also play in sandboxes placed throughout the picturesque property.
Every day at Peddler’s Village, you can stroll winding paths, discover dozens of unique shops and boutiques, and dine at one of eight restaurants. Stay at the charming Golden Plough Inn and visit Giggleberry Fair to ride an antique carousel, climb through a six-level maze, and compete for prizes in a lively arcade.
Book an overnight stay at a Bucks County lodging property and enter to win one of six overnight stay packages at Peddler’s Village! Includes an overnight stay at the Golden Plough Inn, breakfast for two, and a $150 dining gift card ($450 value). Entry form and details.
Stories in Sand is funded in part by the Bucks County Tourism Grant Program.

Through June 9, Peddler’s Village guests will have the opportunity to watch sand sculpting teams as they create magnificent sand sculptures on the property. The three sculptor teams involved in the project will be: the Sand Sculpture Company, led by Ted Seibert; Team Sandtastic; and John Gowdy and Laura Gowdy. All of these teams participated also in last year’s summer sand display at Peddler’s Village, Bucks County Beach Days: Sand Sculptures in the Village.
