Traditional Spanish Market & Contemporary Hispanic Market Arts & Crafts: July 29 and 30
Approximately 250 Spanish Colonial Artists from New Mexico and Southern Colorado will take part in this enchanting event, bringing to downtown Santa Fe a critical mass of exponents of woodcarving, tinwork, colcha, hide painting, retablos, straw appliqué, furniture and furnishings, weaving, jewelry, filigree, pottery and ironwork.
The Spanish Colonial Art of New Mexico features authentic artistic traditions which can be traced directly back over 400 years. Skilled artists and craftspeople create these breathtaking expressions of a living tradition, and many of them count their art as their only source of income. Styles and quality are very different and far more exacting in terms of traditional accuracy and finish than tourist pieces commonly sold elsewhere. All Adult Market artists are juried into the Market and the youth are mentored by current Market artists in their categories.
Rooms will be at a premium, so we encourage our fans, regulars as well as new visitors to book early! Pueblo Bonito b&b offers the only true pueblo-style downtown Santa Fe accommodations dating back to the 1860’s. If guests desire an intimate, secluded, adobe pueblo-style historic experience (original architecture with modern amenities!) we invite you to Stay with Us…. A stay at Pueblo Bonito bed and breakfast inn provides an authentic historic experience that’s’ one of a kind Old Santa Fe! From our 156 yr old property to our traditional breakfast service (breakfast tamales and homemade green chile chicken stew) to our warm, authentic hospitality…. you’ll leave with a little historic southwest you’ll remember a lifetime!
