The City of Clearwater announced Thursday the 2021 Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival was canceled.

“Unfortunately, due to the current restrictions on large gatherings, the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival is unable to take place in April,” Lisa Chandler, Sugar Sand Festival founder and organizer said. “We will continue to keep you informed and look forward to creating another ‘sandtastic’ event in 2022.”
