About Us

The Festival of Arts of Laguna Beach's mission is to promote, produce, and sponsor events and activities that encourage the appreciation, study and performance of the arts. 

Throughout each year the Festival of Arts sponsors art education and provides art scholarships and grants. Every summer the organization hosts the Festival of Arts Fine Art Show and produces its most famous attraction, the Pageant of the Masters.

The Festival of Arts has offered a breathtaking showcase for artists and art lovers for 80 years. The Festival’s prestigious juried art show includes a wide variety of media such as paintings, photography, printmaking, sculpture, jewelry, handcrafted wood and furniture, ceramics, glass and more - all by 140 of Orange County’s finest artists. 

The Pageant of the Masters is arguably one of the most unique productions in the entire world. On each evening of the Festival of Arts summer schedule, ticket holders are amazed and enchanted by ninety minutes of tableaux vivants ("living pictures"), incredibly faithful re-creations of classical and contemporary works of art, with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces. An outdoor amphitheater, professional orchestra, original score, live narration, intricate sets, sophisticated lighting, expert staff and hundreds of dedicated volunteers have won recognition for the Pageant of the Masters as the best presentation of its kind.
