Festival of Arts

Festival of Arts

One of the nation’s oldest and most highly acclaimed juried fine art shows will be going on for the next couple of months: the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts! The Festival of Arts has offered a breathtaking showcase for artists and art lovers for over 80 years.

From its humble beginnings as a means of promoting and sustaining the fine arts in Laguna Beach, the Festival of Arts has matured into a world-renowned cultural institution drawing visitors from far and wide. The Festival has shared its success, awarding millions of dollars over the years in the form of scholarships to art students and grants to art and cultural organizations.

The Festival’s prestigious juried art show includes a wide variety of media such as paintings, photography, printmaking, sculpture, jewelry, handcrafted wood and furniture, ceramics, glass and more—all by 140 of Orange County’s finest artists.

The Festival of Arts and the City of Laguna Beach have grown up together, becoming inseparable in the eyes of residents and of the many patrons who return year after year to enjoy the world-class art of the Festival. If you want to see this show in all its glory, stay in one of our Laguna Beach vacation rentals for at least a week so you won’t miss anything.

From the beginning of July through the end of August, the Festival of Arts opens its doors daily from 10 am to 11:30 pm for visitors to not only enjoy the award-winning work of exhibited artists, but also demonstrations and art workshops, daily art tours, live music, special events, on-site restaurants and much more.

July through August, 10 am to 11:30 pm at 650 Laguna Canyon Road. For more information call 800-487-3378 or visit foapom.com/summer-art-show.
