The Grand Ave Festival, Escondido, takes place in our historic downtown on Grand Ave from Center City to Ivy. You’ll be able to shop from hundreds of vendors for unique hand-crafted gifts and imports, and enjoy international cuisine, local entertainment, and much more! Such as the Creative Kids Corner at Juniper & Grand, and Art in the Garden at Heritage Garden! And be sure to bring your furry, four-legged friend to the Chase lawn area (Grand & Orange) for the Dogs On The Lawn contests to win some fantastic prizes provided by PetSmart Escondido!

Grand Avenue Festival entertainment is from local schools, dance, performing arts and music groups. To perform at the GAF, submit a Performer Application to the GAF Committee.
