The Orange International Street Fair runs Friday: 5-10pm, Saturday: 10am-10pm, and Sunday: 10am-9pm.
Enjoy the Beach
September in Orange County is the most ideal time to go the beach: beautiful 80-degree weather, blue skies with dashes of white, late summer swells, and best of all fewer crowds. Spend your Labor Day weekend soaking in the last of the summer sun on Orange County's 42 miles of picturesque coastline.
The Great Labor Day Cruise
Every Labor Day weekend the Orange County Fair parking lot plays host to a spectacular display of vintage cars. You can indulge in mouthwatering street food and listen to live music as over 1,000 pre-1978 manufactured cars, hot-rods, and novelty international vehicles parade around the 1.25-mile track. Stop by September 1st and 2nd to enjoy one of the nation's largest vintage car cruises.
Sawdust Art & Craft Festival
On September 2nd, over 200 local Laguna Beach artist will flock down Laguna Canyon Drive to take part in the last day of the 52nd annual Sawdust Art & Craft Summer Festival. Founded in 1967, amidst the small but mighty flower power movement in Laguna Beach, the Sawdust Festival was created as a place local artists could display and sell their work. Some of the festival's crafts include hand-blown and fused glass, paintings, jewelry, clothing, photographs, and much more. After shopping for some handcrafted goods, stop by one of the three music stages. The festival takes place at 935 Laguna Canyon Rd, Laguna Beach.
