From the Organizer
Recently voted one of the top five art festivals in the nation by USA Today readers, the Festival of Arts has offered a breathtaking showcase for artists and art lovers for over 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 South Orange County's finest artists. From early July through the end of August, the Festival of Arts opens its doors daily for visitors to enjoy the work of exhibited artists, demonstrations and art workshops, daily art tours, live music, special events, on-site restaurants and much more. Also on the Festival of Arts grounds, 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 recreations 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.
