Meet the World in Santa Fe
A global gathering featuring 150 artists from 60 countries
Meet the world in Santa Fe! 150 master folk artists from 60 countries gather together this July 11, 12, and 13 at the 2014 International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe on Museum Hill.
• Dine at the International Food Bazaar, enjoy entertainment on the Market stage, and meet the artists. This is your chance to shop for jewelry, basketry, textiles, ceramics, and more unique folk art from throughout the world.
• Over the past decade, artist earnings have exceeded $18.7 million and impacted over one million lives in the communities they represent.
• Artists take home 90% of their sales, giving them the opportunity to feed and educate their families and to build schools and wells.
International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe fosters economic and cultural sustainability for folk artists and folk art worldwide and creates intercultural exchange opportunities that unite the peoples of the world. Each year over 20,000 visitors come to Museum Hill to experience the Market and celebrate folk art while enjoying international food and music.
Since 2004, International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe has hosted more than 700 artists from 87 countries in the world’s largest exhibition and sale of works by master folk artists. The Market offers folk artists a respected spot in the global marketplace to gather together and share their handmade traditions, and to create economic, social, and individual empowerment.
Every year over 1,600 community volunteers work to produce a Market that generates an $11 million economic impact for the local economy. The Market’s annual success led to Santa Fe’s designation as a UNESCO City of Folk Art, the first U.S. city named to UNESCO’s prestigious Creative Cities Network.
The International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe is a program of the International Folk Art Alliance, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
