2018 Sand Nativity poster
"Scenes From The Old Testament"

 Opens December 02, 2018 - Closes February 10, 2019

Jesolo Lido, Venice, Italy

  Welcome to the Event Home Page for the 17th edition of the Jesolo Sand Nativity. The city of Jesolo in Venice county was the first in Italy to provide a large public nativity in sand, and is one of the oldest and finest such shows in the entire European theater, and perhaps indeed, all the world.
 From here you can see updated images, and get info about this fine sand sculpture show featuring some of the worlds best sand sculptors, as it develops.

   There is no particular theme for  the show this year, so we are rendering some iconic scenes from the Old Testament (prior to the birth of Jesus)
  Nine international master sand sculptors will create seven sculptures. Damon Farmer will do paintings of other scenes from the Old Testament as well, to be displayed around the show.

   As ever, there will be a massive crescendo piece at the end of the walk-through opera, featuring the birth of Jesus, This year, the piece being created by three sculptors, will be based on the concept of another piece of this same subject being created at Saint Peters Basilica in the Vatican this year, by three other luminaries of our team.

   We are grateful to the Jesolo producers for hosting us again, and the opportunity to once again showcase our works in sand.
It provide new and exciting opportunities for the artists to render scenes that are fresh, interesting, and very fun & challenging to make.

   As a group, we hope you the viewing audience member will enjoy seeing the end result of our show as much as we enjoy creating it for you.
  Thank you for attending this, the seventeenth edition of the Jesolo Sand Nativity. either in person or here online.

The images in the PHOTOS tab will be updated as the show develops.

   We remind you to visit us in Piazza Brescia on the Jesolo  lido next spring and summer, for the 22cnd edition of the Jesolo International Sand Sculpture Festival event. The working idea for the theme will be an undersea motif.

  We hope you can come out to see the works for either the winter or summer shows in person. But if you can't make it to Jesolo, check the progress and see the finished works here online.
