New Addition this year: Sip and Stroll!

Our two wine and beer areas will not be fenced this year.  You’re able to purchase a refreshing beverage with proof of I.D. and take it with you as you view the amazing art.  Or have a seat in our shaded beer and wine area and relax to the nearby music performance areas.


We are thrilled to bring A.J. Croce to ArtWalk Carlsbad for a Sunday afternoon performance at 2:30pm.  

According to Willie Nelson, “A.J. Croce has wisdom beyond his years. With his music, he represents his generation with a profound sense of honesty in his lyrics and quality in his delivery. The future of entertainment is safe in his hands!”

His sound is part New Orleans, part juke joint, part soul, but somehow evokes New York and the stylings of Lou Reed.  He’s a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter.  He’s a piano man, vocal stylist, and consummate performer.

Your ticket to ArtWalk Carlsbad includes A.J.’s performance. Don’t miss it!

In 2018, ArtWalk Carlsbad made its debut.  This fine art festival is part of the ArtWalk San Diego brand known for bringing together all facets of the arts in San Diego while promoting the experience of owning original art.

More than 175 visual artists will show and sell their work, alongside  colorful chalk art that will fill the asphalt as you watch street paintings being created before your eyes on the pavement.
