With this weekend right around the corner, what better way to spend it than coming out to Santo Domingo’s Art and Crafts Market where you can enjoy delicious Native foods, go shopping for one-of-a-kind items, and visit local farmers with fresh produce?
Master of ceremonies Brian Coriz explains this festival has been going on for a number of years where artists and vendors unite to showcase their handmade items. Coriz says their specialty trade of turquoise work has been passed down through generations and is synonymous with the pueblo.
Visitors can also view traditional dances including performances from other pueblos including the Hopi, Jemez Pueblos. You can also sample fantastic food all as part of the weekend festivities.
Several raffles will also be held. The Santo Domingo Pueblo is located 25-miles south of Santa Fe and can be found off of I-25 at the Santo Domingo exit.
There is no admission to take part in the event and parking will be available. The market takes place Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Market hours will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, September 2.
