International Folk Art Market
July 7-11 and July 14-18, 2021

We are excited to announce the return of the International Folk Art Market and the gathering of the wonderful IFAM community.

While the 2021 Market will be different in format than previous events, we will have need for volunteers. But the ever-changing public health landscape is causing the delay of our final plans. We anticipate announcing our event schedule and format in early April, and the publication of volunteer registration instructions in late April or early May. We apologize for the delay and hope you understand.

If you volunteered in 2018 or 2019, we have your information in our database and you will receive notifications.

The success of the International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe is due, in large part, to our amazing volunteers. For 16 years, volunteers have provided their expertise, spirit of friendship, dedication, and resourcefulness to make this the largest folk art market of its kind. We invite you to join us for the amazing experience!
