Jun 8, 2024 - Jun 9, 2024

43rd Challenge New Mexico Arts and Crafts Festival

This Arts and Crafts Festival has something for everyone! With over 150 vendors exhibiting and selling their work at this festival, you will get a taste of authentic art in numerous styles and media. From fine art to photography, jewelry to clothing, sculpting to metal work and pottery, just to name a few, the festival offers you a chance to browse a little bit of everything – all in one place.

Everything is handcrafted! Are you looking for a unique souvenir to take home? Or an original piece of art to spark attention? Perhaps you want something functional and high quality that supports a local artist? Each artist accepted to the Festival is ONLY selling items that they have crafted themselves. You have a chance to speak with each artisan about his or her work.

It’s for a GREAT cause! A visit to this festival directly supports the Challenge New Mexico Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program. By supporting these artists, you are helping ensure that the CNM Ranch can continue to provide services to the special needs community of Santa Fe and all of Northern New Mexico.
