Traditional Winter Spanish Market
November 27-28, 2015
Traditional and innovative Spanish Colonial art, featuring over 100 artists (adult and youth), music, food and more. Now in its third year in Albuquerque, this two day event allows the public to interact personally with extraordinary artists, view their work and observe demonstrations of 400 years of Hispanic culture. Each piece is hand-made and becomes more meaningful when you get to know the tradition behind it, making it a more special purchase to add to a collection or give as a gift. We hope you will bring family and friends to Market and join us November 27-28 to celebrate the 27th YEAR OF TRADITIONAL WINTER SPANISH MARKET!
