Carlsbad Village Street Faire is a unique event that takes place every six months and guarantees a lot of fun for you and your family. Having been held since 1975, it has become one of the most iconic (if not the most iconic) street fairs in the US. The event’s organizers annually prepare amazing stuff for any taste, including various rides, arts and crafts, clothing shops, antiques, vintage goods, and more.
The fair hosts over 750 international vendors, offering cool entertainment options for any taste. Visitors can stroll around downtown Carlsbad, taste mouthwatering meals, sip cool drinks, buy vintage souvenirs, or play games with their children. In addition to all this fun, you’ll be surrounded by gorgeous California nature with its tropical palms, warm climate, and balmy ambiance.
The fair takes place in downtown Carlsbad, on Grand Ave & Carlsbad Blvd, from approximately 8 am to 4 pm. Please note that parking is very limited at this event, so you may want to resort to shuttles, running to and from the fair venue. In addition, Carlsbad is super busy this time of year, so we recommend booking your accommodation beforehand.
