Sunday, August 14 -- The Carlsbad Village Association (CVA’s) Art in the Village will return this August 14th, bringing over 100 local and regional fine artists for a one-day, open air, juried art show.  

What's new this year? More artists than before, a more robust sponsor area, live music with seating from 9am to 5pm, and a live sculpting demonstration complete with live models!

Celebrating the dynamic art culture in Carlsbad Village and the surrounding areas, this event attracts thousands of art enthusiasts and features oil painting, watercolor, photography, mixed media, new media, classical and contemporary sculpture, as well as artisans who work in the mediums of jewelry, woodworking, furniture, pottery, hand-painted clothing and accessories, and more.  Artist demos and instruction will take place throughout the day.  Starting at 9 a.m. attendees can browse exhibits, meet the artists, and listen to live music along State Street and Grand Avenue right in the heart of the Village, just blocks from Carlsbad State Beach. 

Village eateries, coffee houses and wine bars are conveniently located on State and Grand just adjacent to the art show.  Live, local music, with relaxing seating, will be featured at the south end of State Street with four musical groups playing from 9am to 5pm.
