The San Felipe Santero Market at San Felipe de Neri Church in Old Town, Albuquerque has been in existence for 17 years. This free outdoor market is held the first weekend in October during the International Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and attracts thousands of visitors in Old Town. This year the market will be held October 3-4, 2021.
Santeros are artisans who specialize in creating devotional art in the Spanish traditional colonial style. Some examples of Santero art are santos, bultos, tin work, colcha embroidery, straw applique, and filigree jewelry. These artists have been juried in other Santero Markets. New Mexico is home to many award-winning artists.
