Marston was big on drawing big crowds at Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation’s other large scale event last Fall, the 14th annual Oceanside Music Festival. While he is still surfing the top tier of entertainment elite as a Master Musician, he is pleased to offer his top-notch entertainment for the North County audiences at Oceanside Days of Art, a free public event.
Other performers at Oceanside Days of Art this year include Tribal Belly Dance Guild, Oceanside Society Orchestra, Lincoln Middle School Quartet, Cowboy Jack, Star Theatre Company, Oceanside High School Choir, and more.
In addition to great food and entertainment during Oceanside Days of Art, the Carlsbad-Oceanside Art League will host an exhibit of artwork by high school students in Oceanside and Carlsbad at the Oceanside Photo and Telescope Gallery. The exhibition billed as “the biggest high school art show in the county” will be in the OPT Gallery below Oceanside Photo and Telescope, 918 Mission Ave.
