Three Ways To Enjoy Valentine's Weekend

The Carlsbad Village Association is pleased to be hosting three special downtown activations over the holiday weekend. Why? Because we love a reason to celebrate love.

A Carlsbad Village Tradition

The Heart of the Village Blood Drive - over 130 pints of life-saving blood have been donated during this fantastic event, going strong for five years. We are pleased to have Barrio Glassworks be our host location this year. Due to overwhelming support by a very dedicated community, CVA has two mobile buses on site for this event, both which are almost entirely full however. Please check the blood drive schedule for availability for any open appointment times as we are hoping for a record breaking day! And we will do our very best to accommodate walk-up donors, space permitting.

Valentine Pop-Up at Barrio Glassworks

Convenient Valentine's Day shopping in one location! Artisan vendors will include:

  • Handmade greeting cards by local artist Monica Martin
  • Chocolate dipped strawberries from the Strawberry Shack
  • Handcrafted shortbread cookies by Carlsbad Cookie Company
  • Spa gift sets and glass creations by Barrio Glassworks
  • On site gift wrapping
  • LIVE music!
