Placitas Holiday Fine Arts & Crafts Sale

Filed under Arts, Events, Holiday Events, Shopping

Comments Off on Placitas Holiday Fine Arts & Crafts Sale

This weekend marks the 31st anniversary of the Placitas Holiday Fine Arts and Crafts Sale, with free admission, plenty to shop, wine tastings, and food!

Head up to the village of Placitas on November 17 and 18 to find the 2012 Placitas Holiday Fine Arts and Crafts Sale in full swing between 10 am – 5 pm each day.  The juried art show features 80 New Mexico and Southwestern artists, selling items such as jewelry, clothing, glass, ceramics, gourd art, paintings, photography, and painted drums.

Anasazi Fields Winery offers free wine tastings, and food vendors will provide the fuel to keep everyone browsing and shopping!  Tickets for the raffle cost just $1 each, for a chance to win artwork donated by the show’s artists, in an Arts in the School fundraiser for Placitas Elementary School.

Admission is free, and the show takes place at three sites in the village of Placitas: the big tent by the Presbyterian Church; Anasazi Fields Winery, and Placitas Elementary School.

The organizers tell me they’re gussying up the school to give it colorful and festive atmosphere, and the homemade food at the Presbyterian Church Chili Pepper Cafe will include breakfast burritos, pulled pork sandwiches, tamales, and brownies.  (They had *me* at breakfast burritos.) Food vendors at Anasazi Fields Winery are going a bit posher with salmon on a stick in addition to shrimp dogs and shrimp tacos.

Yes, I know it’s all about the high quality arts and gifts, but the food seems quite interesting too. Can you tell I haven’t had my dinner yet?

It’s such a sweet drive up there and a great chance to get into holiday shopping, browse the art, and try some hot mulled cranberry wine.

Placitas Holiday Fine Arts and Crafts Sale

  • When: Saturday and Sunday November 17-18, 2012
  • Time: 10 am to 5 pm each day
  • Where: Placitas village – three central sites, all well signed
  • Price: Admission is free!

Take I-25 north to Exit 242 (Bernalillo/Placitas), and head east on Highway 165 for six miles to reach the village of Placitas.
