In 2022, the Carlsbad Village Association (CVA) hosted nearly 30 events and programs downtown, in addition to 52 consecutive weeks of the State Street Farmers Market! It was a busy year and one full of memorable moments, impactful events, and building wonderful relationships.
Through its event programming in 2022, CVA directly supported over 200 local and regional artists, 85 farmers market vendors, over 50 restaurants and beverage purveyors, 30 musicians, and hundreds of small businesses downtown. With the help of its member businesses and dedicated volunteers, CVA helped remove over 1,000 pounds of litter from downtown streets, and it purchased and gave away over $3,000 in gift cards to Carlsbad Village businesses to keep dollars local. For 2023, CVA is at it again with a robust event schedule that will showcase your favorites while adding a few new ones too!
This year, CVA is very proud to be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Art in the Village, downtown's only fine art, open air show of its size that brings together artists from many different mediums, including music and dance.
CVA is also excited to be celebrating another milestone as Flicks at the Fountain turns 10 this summer! Can you believe that we have shared nearly a decade of "movies under the stars" together in the heart of the Village? And don't forget the Farmers Market. This year will mark 29 years of providing fresh, local produce and amazing artisan food for Carlsbad locals, visitors, and market enthusiasts.
Mark your calendar to join CVA for a spectacular year of event programming as we celebrate our business community and continue to be a premier destination to live, work, shop, dine, and play.
