- Santa Fe's biggest single annual event - four days in late August - attracts over 100,000 visitors who buy high quality Native American art directly from about 1,200 artists representing nearly 100 tribes. Collectors and gallery owners from all over the world come to browse and buy in over 600 booths spread around the Santa Fe Plaza and nearby hotels. Quality art is the prime consideration for artist entries; visitors will see magnificent Native American art of all genres, from traditional to contemporary styles. Paintings, sculpture, jewelry, apparel are all strictly authentic. One of the best tip-offs to the high quality and Indian arts featured are the number of private jets parked at the Santa Fe Airport during the four days of Indian Market - wing tip to wing. Another tip: plan your trip months early, as hotel rooms are hard to find for late planners. The best tip of all? Do Indian Market at least once in your life. The Santa Fe Indian Market has been going in since 1928 and is put on by Southwestern Association for Indian Arts firstname.lastname@example.org.
