What's Allowed & Not Allowed at SandFest



  • Well behaved dogs on leashes are allowed into Texas SandFest. The City of Port Aransas requires that dogs must be on a leash at all times (City Code, Chapter 4, Sec. 4-26).
  • You must pick up after your dog (City Code, Chapter 4, Sec. 4-9). We will have bags for this at the festival.
  • Texas SandFest reserves the right to remove any dog from the festival grounds.
  • Be sure to bring water for your dog as they will get dehydrated quickly on the beach.

Ice Chests & Coolers

You may bring your own ice chest or cooler. Please keep in mind that there is no place to store them.

You may bring your own food and beverages. We will have a variety of delicious food on site — and we sell beer in the beer tent.


Smoking is allowed; however, you must properly dispose of cigarette butts. Please help keep our Texas beaches clean.
