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 750 artists from 92 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.
