Santa Fe is the third largest art market in the nation with more than 150 art galleries. The major sectors of Santa Fe’s county’s population of about 150,000 are comprised of three cultures: Pueblo Indians, people of Hispanic descent and transplanted Western Europeans (commonly referred to as “Anglos”). This tri-cultural base defines the architectural, artistic and culinary differences of Santa Fe. Known primarily for western art, Santa Fe is increasingly being known for its contemporary art scene.

Festival & events occur throughout the year, especially during the summer when Spanish Market, The International Folk Art Market and Indian Market enrich our town with beautiful art and cultures.
