As we enter August, summer is both in full swing and approaching its end, and that gives us all the more reason to go out and celebrate all that Orange County has to offer during this beautiful season.

We have rounded up some of the most notable events happening in August that are the perfect way to soak up the last bits of summer.

Pageant of the Masters
When: Daily through August 31st
Laguna Beach’s Festival of the Arts is an open-air gallery setting which features 140 of the top artists in Orange County, as well as a nightly production. Visitors of the gallery can take tours of the exhibit, catch an art demonstration, and dine at one of the on-site restaurants – they even have daily art classes for kids!

Each evening at 8:30 pm, art comes to life in a starlit amphitheater. This year’s theme is “The Time Machine” where audiences are transported around the globe in search of great art and amazing stories.
