Festival Of Arts Laguna Beach Kicks Off


Laguna Beach’s Festival of Arts will once again let creativity run wild throughout the beach-side community as it welcomes the return of the 86th Annual Festival of Arts Fine Art Show, July 5 – September 1.  

As one of the nation’s oldest and most highly acclaimed fine arts shows, the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts Fine Art Show offers avid art collectors and festival goers an outstanding variety of fine art to browse and purchase. Juried to ensure the highest caliber of artists, the event showcases original works by 140 established and emerging artists from Orange County in various genres including ceramics, glass, painting, jewelry, fiber, mixed media, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and wood.

Since 1932, thousands of artists have shown and sold their work at the Festival of Arts, and many of the artists have their work featured in private and public collections worldwide.  

Although this is an Orange County juried art show, some of the artists exhibited were originally from places outside of the country, including Pil Ho Lee (South Korea), Hugo Rivera (Mexico), Luciano Bortone (Italy), Carla Bosch (South Africa), Jordan Dimitrov (Bulgaria), Mariko Ishii (Japan), Yuri Kuznetsov (Russia), Ryang Yoon (China), Michael Situ (China), Fabrice Spies (France) as well as many others. Their multi-cultural influences contribute to the diversity of the show.  For a full list of the 2018 participating artists, please visit

In addition to the art show, the Festival of Arts offers a wide range of daily activities that the whole family can enjoy. The 2018 events calendar includes nightly live music, jazz concerts, wine and chocolate pairings, guided art tours  and art workshops. Several special one-day events return this year, including the Festival  Runway  Fashion Show and Family  Art  Day.

The 2018 Festival of Arts Fine Art Show will take place July 5 – September 1 with general admission tickets starting at $10 per person. The Pageant of the Masters, running in conjunction with the Fine Arts Show, is July 7 – September 1 with advance tickets now available starting at $15 per person.
