The Sawdust Art & Craft Festival is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public and promoting the art created in Laguna Beach. Since its inception, the Sawdust Art & Craft Festival has celebrated and supported the work of local artists. With two main events annually – the Sawdust Art & Craft Festival, and the Annual Winter Fantasy Festival – the organization is designed to both entertain and educate Laguna locals and tourists alike. Sawdust Art Classes also offer classes and workshops year round, for locals and visitors alike.
For nine weeks throughout the summer months, the Sawdust Art & Craft Festival draws more than 200,000 visitors worldwide each year, invited to shop along sawdust-covered paths through a handcrafted village of fine arts and superb craftsmanship. Artists that exhibit during the summer festival are Laguna Beach residents. Currently celebrating its 53rd year, Sawdust Art & Craft Festival features more than 200 new and returning Laguna Beach artists, who exhibit and sell their original art and handcrafted items in an enchanting outdoor eucalyptus-lined setting in Laguna Canyon. Visitors come to enjoy unique artwork, live entertainment on three stages, eye-catching artist demonstrations, hands-on art workshops for all ages, and delicious food and drink.
Laguna Beach residents get in free after 5pm on both Thursday and Monday evenings.
