The Annual Sawdust Art Festival in Laguna Beach

The Annual Sawdust Art Festival in Laguna Beach

The Sawdust Art Festival is unlike any other place in Southern California.

Founded over 50 years ago to showcase the incredible work of artists that live and work in Laguna Beach, The SAWDUST ART FESTIVAL is an eclectic collection of arts & crafts that highlights the city’s artistic roots. Since every booth at the festival is designed and built by the artists themselves, wandering through the aisles of the 175 artist booths is like meandering through an actual painting.
