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!
- Support and Join a Global Community – Work with over 150 master folk artists from 60 countries who share their authentic artistic traditions. New countries represented in 2019 are Iraq, Australia and Bulgaria.
- Create Sustainable Impact – Artists keep 80% of their earned income, serving as catalysts for positive social change in their communities by improving employment, health care, education, and well-being.
- Become Part of the IFAM Community – Make lasting friendships with up to 2,000 other volunteers from 38 states and 8 countries – each of whom is integral to the success of the event.
