What size are the tents?

Individual artist tents are 10′ x 10′ x 10’ tall up to 10′ X 40′ X 10′ tall. Group tents range in size from 10′ x 20′ (for up to 6 people) to 10′ x 40′ (for 10 or more). You will find a complete list of tent sizes and fees on the application form.  Tents are laid out in groups of 4, where all 4 tents are corners spaces.

May I share a 10′ x 10′ tent with another artist?

No. Individual artists cannot share tents. However, a group may apply for a set of tents for its members to share. ArtWalk San Diego limits group participation to established, permanent artist groups. There are no exceptions. See groups for frequently asked artist group questions.

What do I need to bring to my tent?

You will need to provide all the materials necessary to hang or display your work and to make yourself comfortable during the weekend. Besides hanging materials, you might consider tables, chairs, and rugs.

Will I have access to electricity in my tent?

Electricity is not available at this event.

May I bring my own tent?

The event organizers provide ALL tents. ArtWalk San Diego bases the venue layout on very specific measurements of tents provided by a company contracted for the event.

When can I set up my tent?

Setup for ArtWalk Carlsbad will begin on  Saturday, September 22, 2018 starting at 6AM. See the Setup and Artwork FAQs for a list of questions and  answers about tent setup and artwork selection.

Do I have to empty my tent at night during ArtWalk Carlsbad?

You are not required to empty your tent, BUT we do recommend that you remove any items of value. Many artists leave only their display panels. ArtWalk San Diego will provide security throughout the venue at night.  Its important to note that the venue is near the ocean and the overnight air can be very damp.  If your work can be harmed by moisture, you should remove it. ArtWalk San Diego is not responsible for items lost, damaged or stolen.

When do I have to be out of my tent on Sunday?

Please remove everything from your tent by 8:00 PM Sunday evening.
