Every Sunday, Macaroni KID Carlsbad-Encinitas-Solana Beach shares our picks for five things to do with your kids in San Diego County over the coming week. 

This Thursday marks the official beginning of Summer 2024! Let's get you and the kids out of the house with these five things to do in the Carlsbad-Encinitas-Solana Beach area. Click on the links for all the details!

1. Encinitas Sustainable Solutions Fair

Passionate about the environment and want your kids to learn more about sustainability? Check out the Sustainable Solutions Fair at the Encinitas Farm Lab, hear from speakers and vendors, and play around with some fun and educational DIY activities. Saturday, June 22

2. Art in the Village

This Sunday marks the 26th annual Art in the Village event. Be ready to see some beautiful artwork and meet the 130+ artists showcasing their work! With live music from talented bands, cultural art-making crafts for kids, and delicious food and beer + wine garden, this event will have something for the whole family. P.S. For those who want to get a little workout in, ride your bike to the village and receive a free valet service! Sunday, June 23

3. Encinitas Cruise Night

If you happened to drive through the 101 in downtown Encinitas this Thursday, you might think it's odd how many classic cars you are seeing. If you think that's a coincidence, you would be wrong, as this Thursday is Cruise Night in Encinitas. Take a walk or a drive through to check out some classic cars, local businesses, and maybe even some live music. Thursday, June 20

4. TGIF Concerts in the Parks

Okay, who doesn't love a free concert? The Pine Mountain Logs kick off this summer's TGIF Concerts in the Parks at Stagecoach Community Park. Bonus - this concert is for all ages, and it ends at 8 pm, which means you won't be crawling into bed at midnight. Friday, June 21

5. SAPLinGS (Science, Art and PLay in Garden Spaces)

This week, on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, head over to the San Diego Botanical Garden in Encinitas to get your kids some fun + educational garden time! Wednesdays include hands on garden work, and Fridays have special toddler story times. Wednesday, June 19 - Friday, June 21
