Kick-off holiday shopping while supporting artists! Shoppers can find the most memorable and original gifts, whether it’s a whimsical piece of pottery, a handmade leather belt, one-of-a-kind jewelry or a striking piece of fine art. It’s no surprise that this festival takes the turkey when it comes to New Mexico’s Thanksgiving Weekend traditions! View our Artist Gallery!
Enjoy festive music all day long in both halls! Local carolers, musicians, bands, & pianists gather to spread holiday cheer. Take a break from your shopping to grab some food and listen to the tunes on one of the two plazas. Kiddos can also get in the spirit with entertainment & holiday themed activities just for them! 2019 Entertainment Schedule
Shop gifts that everyone will love - FOOD! Grab some fine chocolates, local honey, natural dips, hearty soup mixes, oils & more. Come for the gifts, stay for the samples! Make your way down Culinary Row with an empty stomach and you won't be disappointed.
