Laguna Beach's art scene culminates each year with the Sawdust Art & Craft Festival, happening daily now through the end of the summer. Nestled along the picturesque Laguna Canyon Road, the Sawdust Fest is a tiny village lined with booths and studios rented by local artisans selling photography, paintings, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, metalware and so much more. There's also a rotating lineup of live music and a way-beyond-typical food and wine court area for your noshing and drinking pleasure. The live glass blower stationed near the middle of the festival is always one of our favorite attractions at this nonprofit event. So make a trek down to Laguna this season and get artistically inspired—or just buy something for yourself.
