5th Annual Taste of Carlsbad Village~ October 13, 2022 ~ The popular Taste of Carlsbad Village returns in 2022 for the 5th time, taking place in the Village on October 13th. So why announce this so early? First, the Taste of Carlsbad Village is historically very popular, and usually sells out. And second, tickets go on sale September 5 so you may want to put that on your calendar. Carlsbad food lovers will spend 3 hours on Thursday October 13th on a self-guided tour with map and Passport (the ticket), tasting their way around our charming Carlsbad Village. The appeal? Why, enjoying bite-sized samples from dozens of local popular restaurants - meat, seafood, vegetarian, vegan. This is a terrific opportunity to check out eateries you don’t know or haven’t tried, and enjoy your favorites, ...

Carlsbad Art Wall July 2022 The 3rd mural of 2022 for the Carlsbad art wall, now the 8th year, was painted in mid-July by artist Matthew Perdoni, and it’s great fun. It took me a while to get by and take a photo but finally managed it. The sun was casting interesting shadows from a nearby palm tree of this whimsical mural capturing Carlsbad beach life. The Carlsbad Art Wall was founded by well-known Carlsbad artist, Bryan Snyder, in 2015, in cooperation with the owner of Senor Grubby’s Mexican Restaurant in Carlsbad Village. Bryan also founded the Carlsbad Alley Art Wall.  The Carlsbad Art Wall offers residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy temporary public art by local, regional, and sometimes international, artists. The public also has the chance to watch the artists at work o...

The 2022 Flicks at the Fountain Are Back July 7 in Carlsbad Village Summer is in full swing in Carlsbad, with some pretty nice weather, and plenty of outdoor activities. This is a friendly reminder the popular Flicks at the Fountain series kicks off on July 7th. This year there are 5 movies, instead of 4, and movies are on Thursdays instead of Fridays. It's nice to not conflict with the ongoing TGIF Concerts in the Parks on Fridays from June 24 through August 19. Some people no doubt want to attend both events. The Flicks at the Fountain run through August 4th, hosted by the Carlsbad Village Association. The movie titles were decided by popular vote. Here’s the movie schedule:Encanto – July 7Goonies – July 14Sing 2 – July 21Top Gun – July 28The Greatest Snowman – August 4 You’ll find th...
