DescriptionThe Santa Fe International Folk Art Market is a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable 501(c)(3) organization. It is now the largest international folk art market in the world, and its 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 mission of the Market is to foster economic and cultural sustainability for folk artists and folk art worldwide and to create intercultural exchange opportunities that unite the peoples of the world. The Market fulfills its mission by hosting an annual festive, two-day event on Museum Hill in Santa Fe, New Mexico adjoining our renowned partner, the Museum of International Folk Art as well as by implementing related programs. Every July, more than 100 select folk artists from over 40 countries travel to historic Santa Fe where thousands of national and international visitors gather to admire and buy distinct folk art forms that express the world’s diverse cultures. On their homepage, information about the artists and artisans can be found.
