Laguna Beach may be known for its pristine beaches and sunny days, but come December, the sea-side town is turned into a winter wonderland with the Sawdust Art Festival, an event that showcases 175 artists, and offers activities, educational classes, holiday entertainment, a petting zoo, and more.
Families can wander through the winter fantasyland and find unique, artisan gifts for everyone on their list. Art gifts includes jewelry, clothing, fused and blown glass, ceramics, woodwork, forged metals, painting, photography, sculpture, clothing and textiles. December 14-15 is the last weekend for the festival. The event is open daily from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. For tickets visit http://sawdustartfestival.org/tickets/.
