August in Santa Fe is one of the best months in the year. Summer is in full swing, the sun is high and the days are long. The reason why we at Adobe Destinations think August is the best month in Santa Fe is due to the fact that the largest gathering of Native American artists occurs.
The annual Santa Fe Indian Market brings thousands of artists together for one wonderful and inspiring weekend. Over 150,000 people come to experience this exciting Santa Fe event.
The Santa Fe Indian Market is not a casual art show. This week is intended for “cultural preservation, intercultural understanding and providing economic opportunities for American Indians through excellence in the arts”. This Santa Fe event celebrates Native American Indian history, tradition and culture, showcases and honors accomplished artists and their work as well as provide opportunities for new artists to gain recognition and exposure.
The Santa Fe Indian Market is a week full of events that appeal to all ages, a wide array of artistic interests, and varying levels of familiarity with the Native American Indian art world.
