Directions and parking

Traffic and parking in the Village can be congested, we recommend you consider alternate transportation. Taking the train, walking, riding your bike, or utilizing Ride Share apps are all great options.


To get to the village, take Interstate 5 to Carlsbad Village Drive and go west. Turn right (North) on Carlsbad Blvd. and then turn left (West) onto Christiansen or Beech avenues to get to the Festival Hub at St. Michael's. 


The Carlsbad Village Station is a Coaster station (San Diego’s coastal commuter train). From San Diego and points South: take the Coaster directly to the station.  From Los Angeles and points North: take the Amtrak or Metrolink to Oceanside Station (or to Carlsbad Village Station at select times) and transfer either to a Coaster train, NCTD 101 bus, or take a cab 2.7 miles to Carlsbad Village Station.

The Carlsbad Village train station is only two blocks from St. Michael’s by-the-Sea!
