All artwork is juried and you can meet the artists in their booths the day of the event. Oil, watercolor, mixed media, digital, photography, glasswork, woodworking, jewelry, pottery, and more will be on display and for purchase.

Live Music 

2023 was our most musical year ever! Music is integral to this iconic event and we are excited to welcome new and returning musicians in 2024. The Ramblin’ Sweethearts are back again this year due to popular demand! More musical acts will be announced shortly. Stay tuned for details.

Cultural Arts Booth

The City of Carlsbad hosted the Pop Up Art (formerly Family Open Studios) art-making booth for children and art enthusiasts of all ages. The City’s Arts Education team helped guide interested artists in creating an abstract “glass-like” masterpiece with a colorful, layered, see-through artwork to bring home. Live music and a face painter was also there to add to the fun!

Food • Beer + Wine Garden

CVA’s Food, Beer and Wine garden is back and better than ever! We can't wait for you to taste and sip the amazing lineup of local purveyors we have in store for 2024. Stay tuned for a full list. 

Location

Grand and State Streets, in the heart of Carlsbad Village.

Ride Your Bike and Park in the Free Bike Valet

The City of Carlsbad offered a complimentary bike valet services for those attending Art in the Village. Operated by the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, a bike valet is like a coat check for bikes.

A bike valet service ensures riders that their bicycles, e-bikes and accessories, like helmets, are safe while they enjoy the festivities. The bike coalition provided the bike corral for security, bike racks for bikes without kickstands and staff to provide bike check-in and check-out.
