On Sunday, May 6, 2018 the streets of downtown Carlsbad will be transformed into a walking plaza packed with all your friends and neighbors along with booths from 800 vendors as part of the The Carlsbad Village Faire.

The Carlsbad Village Faire – the largest one-day street fair in the nation – will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sunday, May 6. The fair stretches 14 blocks. Grand Avenue from Carlsbad Boulevard to Jefferson Street, and all of the cross streets in between, will be closed for the event. Each year, the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce hosts the fair in May and November. Now in its 44th year, the free event has grown to be so popular that it not only continually attracts people from all over Southern California, but also from other states.

We used to visit the Carlsbad street faire every year. To see what Carlsbad Village Faire looked like nearly a decade ago, click here for 2011 or here or 2009. For the official details from the Carlsbad Village Association, please follow the jump.
