Carlsbad. CA –Held every Summer since 1998, the Carlsbad Village Association’s Art in the Village will return on Sunday, June 26th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., bringing 110 local and regional fine artists for a unique one-day, open-air art show.

- Pop-Up Art: An Interactive Encounter (formerly Family Open Studios), that provides a free art making booth for children and their families, operated by the City of Carlsbad.
- Live local musical groups featuring jazz, R&B and contemporary music will perform on the Grand Avenue stage, and local musicians will play throughout the venue.
- Food, Wine, and Beer Garden – this is a family-friendly location in the heart of the venue at the corner of State Street and Grand Avenue that will offer gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, Charcuterie cups to go, fish burritos and poke, and much more. Craft beer by Pure Project will be available for purchase, along with wine by Carruth Cellars.
This year’s featured Artist Ambassador, Larisa Lewis, was born and raised in a small town in Ukraine. Her piece, called “Sailing Into the Sunrise Blues” beautifully represents the coastal theme of Art in the Village.
