Event Description:
Come one, come all to the 2018 Fall Grand Avenue Festival ----

With a new layout design that places all the street vendor booths along the center of Grand Avenue, the storefronts of our vibrant downtown businesses will be easily seen and accessed by attendees. Several other exciting new activities are also being planned.

One new feature event will be “Dogs On The Lawn” at the Chase Bank lawn area at Grand & Orange. This will be an area focusing on our canine friends with representatives from the Palomar Paws program at Palomar Hospital and from the San Diego Humane Society talking about their organizations. In addition there will be a formal meet and greet plus demonstration from the Escondido Police Department’s Canine Unit. On top of that, and sure to be a crowd pleaser, there will be several contests for dogs and their owners to enjoy. There will be prizes awarded for the Best Small Dog Trick, Best Big Dog Trick, Best Dressed Small Dog, Best Dressed Big Dog, and best Pet/Owner Look-A-Like contests!
        - Best Trick Contest Small & Large Dogs @ 10:00am
        - Best Dressed Contest Small & Large Dogs @ 10:30am
        - EPD Canine Unit Demonstration @ 1:30pm
        - Pet/Owner Look-A-Like Contest @ 2:15pm

Another exciting addition will be “Art in the Garden” at Heritage Garden located at Grand and Juniper. This area will be presented by MAGEC (Museums and Arts Growing Escondido Culture), and will be an intimate juried Art show with up to 30 local and regional artists showcasing their talents. Artists such as Virginia Holt (Virginia's Silk Garden) who explains her Art this way: "Art and color defined itself even more, in the discovery of painting on Silk which has opened my heart and passion for color into another brand new dimension." Other artists will include Jeff Peer and his whimsical Glass Art, along with the photographic imagery of Katherine Zimmer.

Other new activities will include a “Creative Kids Corner” at the Escondido Arts Partnership (Juniper & Grand), “The Caballos” are back with their Horses at Centre City (near Orange), and various prizes from Grand Avenue Businesses for anyone who reaches the top of the 24’ climbing wall (Broadway & Grand)!
