Free Family Fun! Check out Art in the Village in downtown Carlsbad (on State Street & Grand Avenue) this Sunday, August 8th from 9am to 5pm. (Again, this looks like an event you could bring your dog to as it appears to be outside...I would just make sure your dog is well-mannered and doesn't get too close to the artwork.) The website states that the event will be "featuring over 100 of the finest artists and artisans in the region." The website also says there will be live music, food, art lessons, demonstrations. Plus, it's right near the beach, so you and your dog could also go for a stroll along the seawall.
