The Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation is a non-profit organization whose goal is to broaden the cultural, artistic, musical and performing arts in Oceanside and the surrounding communities. All proceeds from this event will be used to provide scholarships to graduating high school seniors pursing visual and performing arts degrees not just from Oceanside, but throughout North County San Diego. After OCAF was formed in 1989, OCAF first came up with an idea of Oceanside Museum of Art, then OCAF helped create the city’s Arts Commission, which nurtured the idea for what began as “Day of Art” and eventually turned into Oceanside Days of Art.
