Carlsbad Village Street Fair Sunday May 6th from 8am to 5pm

This Sunday, May 6th from 8am to 5pm between Grand Avenue and Carlsbad Blvd to Jefferson street is the Carlsbad Village Street Fair.

I have to say that I was in the very first Carlsbad Village Street Fair in the early 1970’s when only one block was on State St. from formerly Elm Avenue and Grand St. There were only local artists like myself peddling my pottery along with other potters and painters and a few weavers. That fair has now grown to be one of the largest Street Fairs in the U.S. and has over 900 participating vendors, tons of food, lots of rides and entertainment for all ages and of course the Kiwanis Clubs famous pancake breakfast. Free Shuttle service runs from Poinsettia Coaster station and the Westfield Plaza El Camino Real. For additional information go to The event is always the first Sunday in May and then the first Sunday in November.
