2019 Annual Carlsbad Village Faire

May 6 in Carlsbad California


Carlsbad’s fair season is upon us, now that Spring is here.


art fairOne of the area’s favorite outdoor fairs is coming soon, and it’s reportedly the largest outdoor 1-day fair in the US (other than its competitor, the Carlsbad Village Faire taking place every November).


Better plan now and get it on your calendar for the first weekend in May - that's Kentucky Derby weekend (the race is Saturday)!!


The Carlsbad Village Faire, the 45th this year, takes place Sunday May 5 from 8 am until 5 pm. The fair is held in the heart of our Village, along Grand Avenue from Carlsbad Boulevard to Jefferson and also spills over onto side streets including State Street over to Carlsbad Village Drive.


The Carlsbad Village Faire is an impressive event. While it sounds a bit like a cliché, I think it’s fair to say that there IS something for everyone with over 850 vendors, and surrounded by all our local Carlsbad Village retailers.


You can expect a crowd of tens of thousands to check out clothing, arts and crafts, gift items, collectibles, accessories, plants and garden items, antiques, products from around the world, and so much more.


Need a break from shopping? Other attractions include 50 or so food booths at the International Food Court, and the annual Kiwanis Club Pancake Breakfast at the Carlsbad Train Depot from 7 am until 12 noon, a tradition for over 25 years.


If you actually tire of all the vendors you can explore the wealth of restaurants and retailers in the Carlsbad Village area on the various side streets, including the popular Village Faire Shopping Center just north of the railroad tracks on Carlsbad Village Drive.


And perhaps enjoy a little beach time! The Carlsbad beaches are just a couple of blocks away for a walk before or after the fair, if you have still have the energy.



You can expect that parking will very limited due to the crowds, and with many spaces taken up by Carlsbad Village Faire vendors and road closures, so plan to arrive early – the good news is parking is still free in Carlsbad.


You might also consider taking advantage of the free shuttles offered throughout the day – pickups are at the parking lot at the northwest corner of Sears at The Shoppes at Carlsbad/Westfield Mall (at the 78 and El Camino Real/Jefferson), and the Poinsettia Coaster Station on Avenida Encinas between Palomar Airport Road and Poinsettia.

Sounds like fun!  As to be expected, your weather allows you to get a much earlier jump on festival season than we can here in Cincinnati!  We do get to open our local amusement park this weekend (weekends only for right now).  Time to ride the coasters :)

Jeff sounds like an opportunity for some great family time.  Our fairs are mainly in the Fall, and I love going to them.
