Sawdust Art & Craft Festival
The Sawdust Art & Craft Festival, which dates back to the 1960s, features the fine arts and crafts of Laguna Beach artists. Families can enjoy live entertainment, art demonstrations, classes, and outdoor cafes set in a cool eucalyptus grove.
The festival offers a Children's Art Spot and other hands-on special events, as well as demonstrations of glass-blowing, ceramics, jewelry-making, surf art, and more. This art festival takes place just down the road from the more upscale Festival of Arts (which also runs daily all summer) and makes a great family activity to pair with an evening at that festival's Pageant of the Masters.
The festival runs 10am-10pm daily. (July 4 hours 10am - 6pm)
