The rich Hispanic culture of Northern New Mexico is celebrated at Santa Fe’s Annual Spanish Market. The event is sponsored by the Spanish Colonial Arts Society (SCAS) from 1926 through the mid-1930s, after which it became a combined event with the Santa Fe Indian Market. The once-intimate Spanish Market has now become the largest exhibition and sale of traditional Spanish Colonial Art forms and Hispanic Arts in the United States with over 250 native New Mexican artists – many of them nationally recognized – exhibiting and selling their handmade artwork.
Spanish Market attracts both the local community and serious collectors from around the world. It is a colorful festival, featuring traditional art, music, dance performances, demonstrations, pageantry, and regional food.
