Each summer the Tivoli-Too grounds are transformed into an art oasis. This oasis becomes Laguna Art-A-Fair, home to 125 artists from around the world. Ranging from paintings and photography to ceramics, textiles and jewelry, the festival has something to fit everyone's taste. The entire garden like grounds are covered in large canopies that keep the heat at bay. The aisles are easy to navigate as you meander through looking at the rich and diverse works of art.
