More than 100,000 people will take in the beauty of the seaside city of Carlsbad while browsing through unique booths, indulging in delectable eats and enjoying family entertainment when the largest one-day street faire in the nation returns next month.

The Carlsbad Village Faire will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on May 3rd. Each year, the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce hosts the faire in May and November. Now in its 40th year, the free event has grown to be so popular that it not only continually attracts people from all over Southern California, but also from other states. Some visitors even plan their vacations around the bi-annual event.

Just like at past fairs, over 900 vendors will sell everything fathomable, including clothes, accessories, plants, household products, art, antiques and home decor. The international food court will once again feature more than 50 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.

The Rotary Club of Carlsbad’s beer and wine garden will entertain fair-goers 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 7:00 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. To make parking more convenient, complimentary shuttles will run to and from the faire. Shuttles will pick up and drop off passengers at the Poinsettia Coaster Station and the northwest corner of Sears at Westfield Plaza Camino Real.

Carlsbad is a community with near-perfect weather and two world-class resorts. It supports economic development yet sets aside 40 percent of its land for open space. It has attracted an international theme park and has become the golf capital of the world. Carlsbad has a commuter train, great bus service and the busiest single-runway airport in the nation. A great place to live, with miles of beaches, a wide variety of housing options, terrific shopping, a world-class public library and excellent schools.

Fortune Magazine rated Carlsbad as one of the nation’s five best places to retire. “An affordable Southern California dream lifestyle is still available in about one place: Carlsbad,” the magazine boasted in August, 1997. Fortune pointed out that this community has ample open space, a low crime rate, a near-perfect climate, smog-free ocean breezes, and is not in an earthquake fault zone. In 1999, Where to Retire Magazine rated Carlsbad among the best retirement towns in Southern California. Carlsbad’s population has grown considerably as more and more people become acquainted with the area. In fact, the population has increased five-fold since 1960, but the city’s award-winning Growth Management Plan ensures that the city retains its small-town charm. Despite Fortune calling this town a retirement haven, Carlsbad has a relatively young population, with a median age of 32, and 78 percent of residents under age 55.
