Carlsbad Art in the Village 2018 is August 12th


Carlsbad is known for its 1-day fairs, which are popular with residents and visitors as well numerous vendors who attend. And they are a big part of the Carlsbad Village lifestyle.


 The Carlsbad Village Lifestyle


2018 is the 20th Anniversary of Art in the Village, on Sunday August 12th, in downtown Carlsbad Village along State Street and Grand Avenue.


If you are looking for something fun to do in our beautiful summer weather, especially if you have an interest in arts and crafts, Carlsbad Art in the Village, may be perfect, showcasing works of art from more than 100 or so local and regional arts and crafts artists.


Carlsbad art fairRegardless of your artistic preferences, I bet you’ll be impressed with the variety of arts and crafts at this fair – fine art, contemporary and classical sculpture, clothing, ceramics and pottery, jewelry,  a wide range of paintings (watercolors, oils, acrylics, mixed media), wood working, furniture, and accessories.


What a visual feast for your eyes, so bring your wallet and have some fun!


Carlsbad Art in the Village is free, and runs from 9 am until 5 pm.


The Family Open Studios, a free art-making work shop for all, are new this year. And there will be a Teen Art Pavilion with art work and demos by students from the 2 Carlsbad High Schools.


In August you can expect pretty good weather for being outdoors and just 2-blocks from the beach. Art in the Village fairs are always crowded, with thousands of visitors, so plan on some parking challenges in town, and consider your time accordingly. Good thing the parking in Carlsbad Village is free!


The Coaster is close by (right in the heart of town) if you prefer public transportation or are coming from a distance.


And if by some chance you get tired of the Art in the Village fair, there are lots of retailers in the Village to visit, and places to dine in the heart of Carlsbad Village either during or after the event. Of course our beautiful Carlsbad beaches beckon from just a couple of blocks away.


Carlsbad Art in the Village is sponsored by the Carlsbad Village Association in conjunction with Kennedy Associates.
