More than 100,000 visitors come to town twice a year for the largest one-day street faire in the nation.
The faire runs the first Sunday of May and November. The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce organizes the event, which features 900 arts and crafts booths, antiques, Kiwanis Club pancake breakfast, international food center, a huge section with children’s rides, and a certified Farmer’s Market.
To reach the faire, take Carlsbad Village Drive west from I-5.
Free shuttle bus service is provided from the Shoppes at Carlsbad (Jefferson exit, south of Highway 78) and the Coaster Station (Avenida Encinas, Poinsettia exit, west of Interstate 5).
