36th Annual Placitas Holiday Fine Arts & Crafts Sale

Well-known for the arts, the Placitas Holiday Sale will be celebrating 36 years as one of the most entertaining arts & crafts fairs in New Mexico. Some of the finest Artists and Artisans come from all over our state to show their art at the Holiday Sale, held every year on the weekend before Thanksgiving in the historic Village of Placitas.

Painters, printmakers, ceramic and glass artists, woodworkers, silk painters, photographers, gourd artists, jewelers, metal artists and more will bring their handmade work to sell. Homemade clothing, leather goods, painted drums, hand-carved furniture, and much more art will be on display at the three central locations. Site #1, Anasazi Fields Winery; Site #2, The Big Tent, next to the Presbyterian Church and Site #3 the Placitas Elementary School.

The Placitas Holiday Fine Arts & Crafts Sale is spotlighting Nancy & Jon Couch as its 2016 Featured Artists. Long-time Placitas artists, the Couch's create glass Water Prisms that are popular throughout the world for the brilliant rainbows they produce by the refraction of sunlight, as well as their distinctive shapes.

Nestled at the foot of the Sandia Mountains and known for its beauty, Placitas is 25 miles north of Albuquerque and 50 miles south of Santa Fe. Visitors can take exit #242 from I-25 and drive east on Highway 165 for 6 miles to reach the village. Colorful signs will lead the way.
