The Long Beach Open Studio Tour will not occur in 2020 due to the present pandemic. For the first time in 10 years, we are cancelling.

Thank you for your continued support. We will miss you immensely and hope to see you in the future. Our website will continue to reflect our 2019 tour information so you can see what we’ve done in the past and what 2021 will hopefully look like.

Please stay in touch and feel free to check in with us periodically.

We’ll see what next year will bring!


In celebration of October is Arts Month as well as the National Arts and Humanities Month, your local artists will be opening up their studios to visitors for the LB Open Studio Tour (LBOST). Come see your local artists in their working environments that are not usually open to the public.

The LBOST is a free, self-guided, at your own pace event. There is no ticket to buy. All you need is the Tour map that can be found around town at local businesses, coffee houses, and merchants, or download it here on our website.

This year, we offer four separate hubs, each with its own weekend. The first hub is Zaferia/Eastside on October 5th & 6th, then the Cal Heights/Bixby Hub on October 12th & 13th, the Wrigley Hub on October 19th & 20th, and the Belmont Heights/Belmont Shore Hub on October 26th & 27th. All studios are open from noon to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.

Get together with friends and visit all the studios to support your local artists!The
