Celebrate the Heart of Local Commerce on Small Business Saturday 2023!

Join us in the heart of Carlsbad at Village Faire on November 25th, where the essence of community and the spirit of Small Business Saturday come alive!

A Decade of Dedication to Small Businesses

Marking the 13th anniversary of the Shop Small Movement, initiated during economic hardship, this day is a salute to the enduring spirit of entrepreneurs and family-run businesses. While the challenges have evolved, the passion of our local merchants burns ever bright. Carlsbad Village’s quaint lanes are a testament to this tenacity, and at Village Faire, we’re committed to nurturing this vibrant community.


Join the Festivities!

The celebration at Village Faire is the highlight of the Village’s festivities! With no purchase necessary, indulge in the chance to win over $1,500 in prizes, including dining and retail gift cards, all courtesy of the dedicated businesses within the Village. Capture the joy with a selfie to win an extraordinary Grand Prize. The festivities start at 11:00 am and continue until 4:00 pm, with the enchanting melodies of award-winning pianist Robert Parker, from noon until 3:00 pm. Visit the CVA booth at the corner of Grand Ave. and State St. for free tote bags and exclusive Carlsbad swag, available while supplies last!
