Gearing up for a very Merry Christmas in the Carlsbad Village

Southern California has it’s very own style when it comes to the holiday season, and here in Carlsbad we like to pair our tacky Christmas sweaters with flip flops and sip our hot cocoa while enjoying the sunset from sandy beaches. If you happen to be in town this time of year, here are some local happenings worth checking out:

While taking a stroll through the Village this Friday evening December 19th, make sure you catch the Merry Friday Night Live Encore taking place along State Street between Carlsbad Village Dr. And Grand Ave. from 6-8 pm. Performances will feature a variety of local musicians belting out Christmas carols for all the family to enjoy. While you’re in the area, take the time to catch up on any last minute holiday shopping by visiting any of the Village’s one-of-a-kind boutique shops.

If you’re looking for some entertainment, head on over to the New Village Arts Theater for a magnificent performance of the Nutcracker. Keep in mind, this is not the ballet version! More information and ticket pricing can be found at

Still haven’t had a chance to check out the new and improved State Street Farmers’ Market? Grab your friends and family and take a much needed break from all the stress of holiday planning by heading downtown on Wednesday evening between 3-6 pm (yes, on Christmas Eve!) Enjoy fresh organic produce, locally prepared foods, handmade crafts, and live entertainment in the heart of Carlsbad Village on State St. between Carlsbad Village Dr. and Grand Ave.

Finally, whether you’re a local or just passing through from out of town, remember that you always have a place to stay at the Carlsbad Inn! Check out our holiday promo rates for the best deals on beautiful hotel rooms in the perfect coastal location. We hope to see you soon- happy holidays and warm wishes!
