Laguna Beach attracts visitors and new residents for myriad reasons. An amazing beach-centered lifestyle, fantastic weather and a host of other benefits make it a go-to spot for people from around the globe. Festivals are big here, and art lovers are in the midst of one of the most exciting: Festival of Arts 2015. Although the art fest began in July, there's still time to visit this August.
Here's what you'll find:
- Handcrafted wood and furniture
The renowned festival puts works by 140 local artists front-and-center, giving you the opportunity to experience firsthand the amazing talent residing in Orange County. In addition to displaying works of art, festival organizers have arranged an array of exciting activities. Besides viewing pieces in a variety of media, festival goers can enjoy these events:
- Live music
- Interactive art demonstrations by exhibitors
- Free interactive educational tours of festival exhibits
- Art lectures and workshops
A number of special events make the 2015 festival even more unique. Concerts on the Green and Sunday Afternoons in the Park create a wonderful aural atmosphere, while Family Art Day encourages children to get into the spirit of the festivities with a marionette show, treasure hunt and a host of other fun and engrossing activities.
Couture lovers will enjoy the festival's fashion show, in which models show off the latest up-cycled clothing. And then there's the Art, Jazz, Wine and Chocolate series. Need we say more? Celebrate the senses and satisfy your hunger with fabulous cuisine at two on-site restaurants, Tivoli Terrace and Gina's Alfresco. Or pack your own picnic to make the most of beautiful August days.
Perhaps best of all is the ability to buy the works of art you see on display at Festival of Arts 2015.
