Carlsbad City Council to discuss 2024 TGIF Summer Concerts – The Carlsbad City Council is scheduled to receive an update at its March 19 meeting about planning for the 2024 TGIF Concerts in the Parks season.

Last December, the City Council asked staff to plan nine concerts in 2024. The City Council also voted to add security precautions recommended by the city’s police and fire chiefs to bring the concerts up to the same standard as other large public events.  

On the agenda

At the March 19 meeting, staff will provide an update on planning completed so far, including proposed park locations and dates, options for managing attendance and increasing security, a sponsorship pilot program and other details. 

Part of the added security precautions for the 2024 concert season included evaluating concert venues based on safety and security management, adjacent parking and shuttle pick-up lots, and the overall size of each park.

The locations for the nine concerts this season are:

  • Stagecoach Community Park
  • Calavera Hills Community Park
  • Alga Norte Community Park

More information

Tuesday, March 19 – 5 p.m. • Carlsbad City Hall 1200 Carlsbad Village Drive

EGGstravaganza Spring Festival

Hop on down to the City of Carlsbad’s popular EGGstravaganza Spring Festival

Saturday, March 3010 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Poinsettia Community Park 6600 Hidden Valley Road

This annual spring event features

  • Carlsbad’s largest egg hunt, an ongoing egg scramble where kids race to collect candy-filled eggs
  • Face-painting, crafts, cookie decorating, a fun zone, soak the bunny and more
  • Food and beverages available for purchase

How the egg scramble works …. The egg scramble is ongoing from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or until eggs run out. To keep the scramble fun for all ages, one field will be designated for children ages 6 and over who want to race for their eggs, and an identical one will be for children ages 5 and under. There is also a noncompetitive field for young children, children with special needs, and for families wanting to pose for a photo opportunity.
To avoid lines during the event, $5 activity cards and $5 unlimited inflatables wristbands can be purchased in advance at city community centers. The cards can be divided among multiple children for all the activities; however, wristbands are per person. Both can be purchased at these locations Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.:

Calavera Hills Community Center, 2997 Glasgow Drive

Stagecoach Community Center, 3420 Camino de los Coches

Alga Norte Aquatics Center, 6565 Alicante Road

Pine Avenue Community Center, 3209 Harding St.

It is highly recommended to buy your tickets presale at one of our community centers. Don’t forget to bring your favorite basket for the egg scramble.
