About the Indian Fair & Market
One of Arizona's most significant cultural events, the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair & Market, the state's largest, continues to combine innovative new artists and activities with the timeless traditions of the Southwest.
Beginning life as a small community event, the Fair is now a world-acclaimed festival that draws nearly 20,000 visitors and more than 700 of the nation's most outstanding and successful American Indian artists. You'll see both grand masters and young, cutting-edge contemporary artists such at the Fair. Among the guests are thousands of collectors from around the world who arrive early to be the first to purchase one-of-a-kind artwork like jewelry, pottery, baskets, katsina dolls, textiles, fine art and more.
But there's far more to the Fair than just the nation's very best American Indian art! In fact, the Fair is the perfect place for families wishing to enjoy a cultural and inexpensive weekend of music, entertainment and food. Festival goers can enjoy an array of American Indian music and cultural performances in the museum's outdoor amphitheatre throughout the weekend. A variety of foods including American Indian favorites like fry bread, posole stew, piki bread and Hopi stew as well as Mexican and American fare tempt the tastebuds.
