CARLSBAD — It’s time again for the Carlsbad Village Street Faire set from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 2. Each year, the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce hosts the faire in May and November.
“This is the place to go and buy those holiday gifts that you can’t find anywhere else,” said Ted Owen, president and chief executive officer of the Carlsbad Chamber. “The faire features a wide variety of vendors that sell everything imaginable.”
The event will once again include two international food courts with more than 50 booths serving everything from barbecue to Thai cuisine. A children’s area will entertain youngsters with rides, games, a super slide, a bounce house, a rock climbing wall, face painting and arts and crafts.
The Rotary Club of Carlsbad’s beer and wine garden will once again entertain fairgoers with a large screen TV and live bands. The Kiwanis Club of Carlsbad will continue its more than 25-year tradition of hosting a pancake breakfast at the Carlsbad railroad depot. The meal, which includes pancakes, sausage, coffee and juice, will be served between 7 a.m. and noon. Grand Avenue from Carlsbad Boulevard to Jefferson Street, and all of the cross streets in between, will be closed for the event from 4 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 2.
To make parking more convenient, complimentary shuttles will run to and from the faire every 20 minutes. Shuttles will pick up and drop off passengers at the Poinsettia Coaster Station (Poinsettia exit off of Interstate 5) and the northwest corner of Sears at the Westfield shopping center.
