The Festival of the Arts is on in Laguna Beach right now. And the nightly Pageant of the Masters. This evening will have terrible traffic from Newport to LB on Pacific Coast Hwy (PCH). It's probably not something you want to do.
And then, if you want, you can go to the Festival Art show which opens at 10:00am.
Or go to the Sawdust Festival. They are very near each other so you can walk and don't have to move your car.
I was in Laguna Beach last Friday evening and wisely approached it from the south and then came north on PCH. My cousin drove south from Corona Del Mar expecting a 15 minute drive and it took her over an hour. The traffic going south was practically stopped. So, I would take elizzie's advise and go VERY EARLY. Go for breakfast, park in a lot with "by the day" parking and spend the day.
