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.

On Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11, stop by our lemonade stand on the Village Green for fresh lemonade! Proceeds benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
