Spring Shop Hop 2019 in Carlsbad Village April 20

Carlsbad Village Spring Shop Hop 2019


The 3rd annual Carlsbad Village Spring Shop Hop is happening in the Village on Saturday April 20th from 11 am to 6 pm.


The Carlsbad Village Association sponsors the Spring Shop Hop, with a focus on the many fine businesses in Carlsbad Village. You will find plenty of dining and shopping discounts, food samples and snacks, live music, plenty of fun, and an opportunity to win prizes from area businesses.


Downtown Carlsbad VillageAll you have to do to qualify is to check in for your Spring Shop Hop passport at 11 am at the Carlsbad Village Association Welcome Table, located at the corner of Grand Avenue and State Street.


Then…and this is the easy peasy part…visit at least 10 area retailers to have your passport stamped, then turn your passport in before 6 pm at the Welcome Table. With over 40 participating businesses, this should be simple.


No purchase is necessary to win! But I bet you’ll find it hard to NOT buy something!


There are over $1500 worth of gifts to be given away (e.g., salon and spa packages, shopping and dining certificated, free nights at selected local hotels), even better than last year!


Carlsbad signWhat a fun way to enjoy beautiful Carlsbad Village, check out our many small businesses – perhaps some new to you – do some shopping, and support our community.


Don’t miss the 3rd Annual Spring Shop Hop on Saturday 4/20 in Carlsbad Village. Why not make a day of it and enjoy the beach and breakfast before you start shopping, or dinner once you are done (check out the restaurants in the North State area of Carlsbad Village)?!


Complementary reusable shopping bags will be given out to the first 100 people who check in at the Welcome table.


Better get there early to find the best parking (yes, it’s still FREE in Carlsbad Village). No doubt there will be lots of interest in this event, and with great weather there are lots of people out and about in the Village on the weekends.

Good morning Jeff - this is a really good idea.  We did this at the market center exhibit areas at conferences.  I am sure it will give lots of new exposure to the businesses.

I thought it was a great idea, too Grant Schneider . And from all I have heard and read the business community is very supportive and excited about the community activities in the Village that bring in so many people. The Carlsbad Village Association does a great job, and it good for everyone.

Thanks for stopping by Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi . It's a great opportunity for the businesses, and residents. And yes, the weather at this time of year can be pretty darn nice!!

Hope you are not siffering too badly with the blizzard - it sure sounded ugly.

They sponsor a number of events during the year for the Village businesses, and they are always well attended by residents and visitors (at least the ones I have gone to) Ron and Alexandra Seigel  Smart marketing indeed.

Thanks for your compliment!

Sounds like a wonderful time and such a great area.  I am missing California, not sure if I will get out there this year though, but we shall see, they year is still young.

I often tend to misread title lines because I don't have my glasses on, or I read them too quickly.  I first read this one as, "Spring Hop Shop," and thought what a great name for a brew house!

It's defininitely a win for residents, visitors and the business community Sally K. & David L. Hanson . We will not be in town that day but it should be well attended and lots of fun.
