Sawdust Art Summer Festival


Creating at Sawdust Festival

Our family has Summer traditions and visiting the Laguna Beach Sawdust Art Festival is one of them. The Sawdust Art Festival features over 200 Laguna Beach Artists and their work. There are live demonstrations, a children’s area where the kiddos can explore their artistic side, live entertainment and art work all around.  It is a fun and unique experience for the entire family. Everyone in your family will find something fun to do or see at the Sawdust Art & Craft Festival.

The Sawdust Art Festival will take place from June 27th to August 31st and be open from 10am to 10pm daily. Tickets are $8.50 and kiddos 5 and under are free.

Last year the kiddos had a blast taking one of the pottery classes and made some cute vases. They had a blast and can’t wait to do it again next year. To learn more about the festival, check out their class schedule, or get your tickets, head here.

Sawdust Art Festival- Laguna Beach

Summer is here and that means the art festivals will soon be starting in Laguna Beach. My favorite festival hands down is the Sawdust Art Festival. The mission of the festival is to” educate the public about the art created in Laguna Beach,” the Sawdust Art Festival provides a variety of art and craft projects for all ages at their Children’s Art Spot, Ceramics Booth, Sawdust Studio, and their world-class Glass Blowing Booth. They will also hold Summer Evening Art classes at 7 p.m. Sunday-Thursdays.

You can meet the artists that will be featured at the festival when you take the
Meet the Artists Tour on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. or take a Weekend Walkabout Tour of the Sawdust grounds to learn interesting tidbits on Saturdays and Sundays at 12 noon. Tours are complimentary with admission.

I know quite a few of you enjoyed the Creatively Fun Day back in April and I promise that the summer festival is just as good. Once you visit for the day you will want to go back for the rest of the summer!!
