Fête de la Musique 2020

This is a shortened version of the event. Scroll down to see the entire 5-hour event video.

With the City of Laguna Beach officially canceling all summer events to comply with the mandated stay-at-home orders and social distancing due to COVID-19, the   Laguna Beach Sister Cities Association (LBSCA)  will be live global streaming the 2020 Laguna Beach Virtual Fête de la Musique!

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the only onsite audience at the LBCAC will be people involved with the performances; it is not open to the general public.

“The Laguna Beach Cultural Arts Center (LBCAC) is honored to play an important local role in maintaining this meaningful worldwide tradition,” said Rick Conkey, founder and director of LBCAC. “During these challenging times, the Fête de la Musique provides vital nourishment for our souls, through an inspiring display of Art, Music and Culture. At this period in history, I can’t think of a more worthy event to support.”
