You’re not going to want to miss the Sacred Heart Spanish Market, because this big a collection of artistic masters is hard to find all in one place outside of the plaza in Santa Fe.

Over 40 artists and craftsmen from New Mexico and Arizona, specializing in traditional and
contemporary Spanish Colonial art, will exhibit and sell their work.


Come and check out the dozens of booths and art displays, or attend a lecture or demonstration where the artists will share their expertise and creative processes. Once you’ve taken in some of the best artistic displays New Mexico has to offer, why not stop by our car show? Plenty of classic, vintage and lovingly-restored cars will be on display for your enjoyment.

You’ll also be able to enjoy plenty of tasty food items and listen to performances by school bands and dancers, and buy tickets for the parish raffle, which features a top prize of $10,000.
