Laguna Beach is home to some of the world’s best artists. And fortunately, you can catch them all in one beautiful place everyday now through August 30.

Celebrating its 49th season, the Sawdust Art Festival brings together 200 established and emerging Laguna Beach artists and craftsmen for a family-friendly experience that’s as interactive as it is cultural.

Named the “best art festival” in Laguna Beach by OC Weekly, as well as one of the country’s "top five festivals" by American Style Magazine, the Sawdust Art Festival puts guests in the middle of all the creativity. You’ll stroll sawdust-covered paths, stopping by artisan booths showcasing the finest hand-blown and fused glass, painting, jewelry, surf art, ceramics, clothing and textiles, wood and metal sculpture, scrimshaw, photography, and so much more. Mingle with friendly artists who share their creative process, drop by the glassblowing enclosure, where craftsmen perfect their wares in the furnace, and even create your own unique piece of art by signing up for a class in Sawdust studio!

But the fun doesn’t stop there. From delicious food and drinks (indulge in gourmet tacos at Tacos Durrell or a cold craft beer in Sawdust Saloon) to a daily entertainment schedule featuring soul, reggae, jazz, rockabilly and even magic for the kids, the Sawdust Art Festival has enough action to satiate any appetite.

The Sawdust Art Festival is a nonprofit art organization dedicated to educating the public and promoting the art created in Laguna Beach. To check out more details about the Sawdust Art Festival’s 49th annual summer season and calendar of events, please visit
