2021 Carlsbad Village Flicks at the Fountain

~ An Update ~


As mentioned previously, the popular summer outdoor movie series in Carlsbad Village, Flicks at the Fountain, has returned in 2021 after being cancelled last year.


Flicks at the Fountain is hosted by the Carlsbad Village Association, with sponsorships from other businesses in the village.


The schedule is set with 4 popular movies, and the titles have recently been announced.

July 22 – Toy Story

July 29 – Ghostbusters

August 5 – Frozen (with a costume contest)

August 12 – Star Wars: A New Hope


The Flicks at the Fountain take place on the big screen in the parking lot at the corner of State Street and Grand Avenue. You can bring your chairs and get settled beginning at 6 pm. The movies typically start around 8 pm.


You already know from living in the area that evenings by the beach in the summer can still be cool, so bring blankets along with your low-back chairs.


You are welcome to bring food, or do it the easy way and eat locally OR grab some take-out nearby!




The revised TGIF Concerts in the Parks…now TGIF in Your Backyard for 2021 until the real event returns in the Summer of 2022, started July 9 – there are 3 more streaming concerts to enjoy, the next one is July 23.


Not in Carlsbad but very popular nonetheless - thoroughbred racing opened today at the Del Mar Racetrack, running through September 6th (Labor Day).

Morning Jeff.

No such animal in our area.  Other than a fresh water lake, the only sand associated with salt water is a 10 hour drive

Good morning, Jeff... I'm certain, Carlsbad area residents are thrilled by the return of the outdoor flicks. (I know they are very popular at my end.)

It would be fun to see all of the kids having a good time at these events and I am glad that in-person events are again becoming the norm.

The events held in Carlsbad are alway popular Brian England , at least the ones I have attended have been. Outdoor movies always seem to bring out the crowds.

I hope Carlsbad can continue to enjoy the Flicks at the Fountain, Jeff.  Activities that can be enjoyed outdoors are a good thing.
