The 26th annual Winter Spanish Market returns to Albuquerque on November 28th and 29th with a greatly expanded show that will be close to 50 percent larger than last year. Held again at Hotel Albuquerque near Old Town, the event is expected to draw an even larger crowd this year.
With well over 100 of the finest artists who embrace the traditional Spanish Colonial arts participating, visitors can expect to see santos, tinwork, straw appliqué, weaving, pottery, precious metal, colcha, bone carving, furniture, woodcarving and utilitarian objects, all traditions endorsed by Spanish Colonial Arts of New Mexico.
Join us for a special early bird Champagne Brunch- 11:30-12:30.
The event opens at 12:30 p.m. on Friday with live music that honors the Spanish Colonial tradition, and the opportunity to view the works of both adult and talented youth artists.
Saturday’s event begins at 9 a.m. with a procession of artists from the San Felipe de Neri Church in Old Town, accompanied by mariachi, and a blessing of the Market by Father Dennis Garcia.
Several live demonstrations by some of the artists will be offered, and visitors will have the opportunity to meet and talk with the artists throughout the event.
