Proceeds from the opening night affair will benefit the California Sports Hall of Fame founded by former all-pro running back for the Kansas City Chiefs, Christian Okoye. The nonprofit is dedicated to helping at-risk and under privileged youth by hosting free athletic clinics hosting by well-known professional athletes. Okoye and other known sports celebrities will be on hand at the VIP to greet guests.

The luxury design wall was created by renowned interior designer Nancy Vengoechea of Vengo Design International in partnership with luxury brands tied to the latest design trends in furnishings, flooring, lighting, wall finishes and more. Organizers developed the concept so homeowners can envision fine art in various settings.

Individual tickets to the June 29 VIP night are $150 and can be purchased online at

A juried art exhibit, Laguna Art-A-Fair has set and maintained a standard of excellence that is respected both internationally and by the local art community.

Arranged as an artist coop, each participant plays a role in producing the annual exhibit that features 120 art exhibits, workshops, food & wine and live music in a scenic Laguna canyon setting. 

Unlike other local art shows, Laguna Art-A-Fair does not have residency restrictions so the festival draws a geographically diverse group of artists with works rich in quality yet diverse in content.
