The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce strongly advises that those who plan to attend the Carlsbad Village Faire this Sunday, May 3, take advantage of a free shuttle service to get to and from the event. Due to construction along the Coastal rail corridor, the Coaster will not be operating during the weekend of May 2-3.
The Carlsbad Village Faire, presented by the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce, will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 3, 2015 in the Village of Carlsbad. Grand Avenue from Carlsbad Boulevard to Jefferson Street and all cross streets will be closed to cars and traffic during the event.
The complimentary shuttles will pick up and drop off passengers at the Poinsettia Coaster Station and the northwest corner of Westfield Carlsbad near the Sears department store. Shuttles will run on a loop from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 20-minute intervals.
“The Carlsbad Village Faire is our community’s signature event, attracting thousands of attendees annually,” said Ted Owen, president and CEO of the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce. “We want to be sure our guests have a good option for getting to and from the event with ease.”
The free event, the largest one-day street fair in the nation, has grown to be so popular that it not only attracts people from all over Southern California, but also from other states.
“The Chamber is honored to present this iconic event that draws so many people and families to our city to enjoy the natural beauty and the unique products and services that Carlsbad offers,” said Owen. “We also think this is a wonderful opportunity for people to discover the wonders of the Village of Carlsbad and to explore the downtown businesses.”
The Faire offers a cornucopia of gifts and products including clothes, accessories, plants, household wares, art, antiques and home decor. The international food court will once again feature booths serving everything from Thai to Hawaiian cuisine. The children’s area will entertain youngsters with games, a super slide, a bounce house, a rock climbing wall, face painting and arts and crafts.
Event sponsors include Brecht Motorsports, Scripps Health and Smart Automobile.
