The Summer Stroll features 11 stops along Mermaid Street and Forest Avenue, each highlighting public art in Laguna Beach. Every clue features a different piece of artwork and showcases the piece’s artist & history (when applicable).

The 2024 Summer Stroll is live now and will run throughout the summer. Visitors can access the stroll through QR codes posted in and around the library. All are encouraged to share photos & tag @lagunabeachfairygarden.

The Laguna Beach Fairy Garden was founded in 2014 by local artist Jessica DeStefano at the Laguna Beach Library. The Garden features more than 30 fairy houses and fairy scenes nestled throughout drought-tolerant, pollinator-friendly plants. A key highlight of the garden is the fairy mail, where locals and visitors write and receive letters from fairies. The garden receives 150-300 letters each month. Visitors are encouraged to visit the garden year-round and participate in the Summer Stroll from June through September.
