Beaufort is a triennial art event that has been taking place since 2003 along the sea walls, beaches and dunes of the Belgian coast. For six months, art lovers, residents and tourists can come to admire remarkable and memorable works of art in each participating coastal municipality, across the 67-kilometer long coastline. Throughout the previous editions of the Triennial of Contemporary Art by the Sea, the coastal municipalities purchased various artworks. These either remained at their original locations or were assigned a new venue. This is how Beaufort, a permanent Sculpture Park featuring 40 pieces of art already, was born. It is the largest open-air exhibition taking place in the unique scenery of the Coast.

The Beaufort Sculpture Park came about in collaboration with the municipalities of De Panne, Koksijde, Nieuwpoort, Middelkerke, Ostend, Bredene, De Haan, Blankenberge, Zeebrugge and Knokke-Heist.
