Santa Fe Indian Market

SWAIA will celebrate its  annual Santa Fe Indian Market the week of August 13-18, 2019.

Santa Fe Indian Market

Over 175,000 people will com to Santa Fe this August. The, Santa Fe Indian Market attracts international visitors from all walks of life

Most events are free and open to the public. Join us! It will be an experience of a lifetime.
The Market was first held in 1922 as the Indian Fair and was sponsored by the Museum of New Mexico.

The market features pottery, jewellery, textile weavings, painting, sculpture, beadwork, basketry, and other traditional and contemporary work. It is the oldest and largest juried Native American art showcase in the world.

Artists display their work in booths around the Santa Fe Plaza and adjacent streets, selling directly to the general public.
