Art in the Village will feature around 100 local and regional artists. Attendance is free and the fair is open from 9 am until 5 pm. Art in the Village covers about 4 city blocks along State Street and Grand Avenue.

Art in the Village is sponsored by the Carlsbad Village Association, and there are new as well as returning artists. Artists are jury-selected so you can expect high quality. All artwork is handcrafted, not mass produced, and therefore unique.


So what will you find at Art in the Village besides artists and their booths? You can enjoy interactive demonstrations (e.g., pottery making, sculpting), performance art, and live music. You may want to check out the Carlsbad Village Association Food, Wine and Beer Garden, too.

There will be Pop-Up Art Booth for all art enthusiasts to create their own masterpieces. The Pop-Up Booth is hosted by the City of Carlsbad. Trained instructors will be available to assist as needed.

You should expect contemporary and classical sculpture, ceramics and pottery, digital art, photography, jewelry, and paintings (watercolors, oils, acrylics, and mixed media). You’ll also find wood creations, metal, glass, furniture, and more.

Be sure to bring your credit cards and/or cash!

Carlsbad Village art fairs are crowded, so you can expect some parking challenges. The good news is our parking is free. But consider your travel time accordingly, and you may need to walk a distance.

Don’t forget the Coaster commuter rail station is 1 block away if you prefer public transportation to avoid parking issues.
