The Laguna Beach Festival of Arts is a 501c3 with a mission 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 programming, art exhibits and provides art scholarships to local high school students as well as grants for local non-profit art organizations through its Foundation. The Festival owns an extensive Permanent Art Collection, which is regularly on display throughout the year. The Collection continues to grow, with artwork acquired through purchases, bequests and donations.
Every summer the organization hosts California’s premier open-air fine art show which has gained international prestige and produces its most famous attraction, the Pageant of the Masters that for the last eighty years has combined the worlds of theatrical illusion and artistry.
