SANTA FE, NM – The Southwestern Association for Indian Arts (SWAIA) has announced the debut of Santa Fe Indian Market in Albuquerque on Saturday, October 1, and Sunday, October 2, from 9am to 5pm in downtown Albuquerque at Glorieta Station.
The Albuquerque market will offer 100 booths on a first-come, first-serve basis to SWAIA’s 2022 juried artists.
“We are leveraging the huge audience that visits Albuquerque each fall for the balloon fiesta and delivering on our organization’s mission to provide opportunities to promote Native artists 365 days a year,” said Kim Peone, SWAIA’s Executive Director.
After the success of this year’s Centennial Indian Market in Santa Fe, SWAIA is proceeding with numerous events including a late September fashion show collaboration with IAIA at Bishop’s Lodge, Auberge Resorts Collection, the annual Winter Indian Market in Santa Fe on December 2nd and 3rd at the Santa Fe Convention Center, and the weekend market in Albuquerque.
The Southwestern Association for Indian Arts is a non-profit organization supporting Native North American arts and culture. It creates economic and cultural opportunities for Native North American artists by producing and promoting the Santa Fe Indian Market, the largest Indian art event since 1922.
