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 was a great success thanks to our generous downtown beverage sponsors and food purveyors. Great teamwork! Pure Project, Carruth Cellars Urban Winery, Drippin' Kitchen, Nico's Fish Market and Acai Surf & Roll made this a very special day.

This year, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Kiln Carlsbad, the public was able to enjoy a brand new hospitality seating area in the Food, Beer + Wine Garden.

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.
