The 22nd Annual Art in the Village

Canceled -- Due to recent updates regarding the Coronavirus from the State of California with the County of San Diego being placed on the watchlist resulting in additional business sector closures, the Carlsbad Village Association has decided to cancel the 22nd Annual Art in the Village. Like you, we are extremely disappointed but stand by the decision to place the health and safety of our artists, staff and community members first during this time. A website highlighting the artists who will be showing with us in 2021 will be online mid-August so that you can experience their artwork and connect with them directly. We hope you will support them during this difficult time and will plan to join us in 2021.

The Carlsbad Village Association's Art in the Village will take place on Sunday, June 27, 2021.  Past events have brought over 110 local and regional artists for a fantastic one-day, open-air event. Celebrating the dynamic art culture in Carlsbad Village and the surrounding areas, the event attracts thousands of residents and travelers by offering a diverse selection of fine artists in media such as painting (oil, acrylic, watercolor), classical and contemporary sculpture, glass, drawing, photography, metal, mixed media, digital art, printmaking, wood, and fiber. Starting at 9 a.m. attendees browse exhibits, watch performance art, enjoy interactive demos, and listen to live music along State Street and Grand Avenue right in the heart of downtown Carlsbad Village, just blocks from Carlsbad State Beach.
