Is the art sold created by youth?
No. All of the vendors in our show are professional artists and craftspeople. The revenue raised from renting booths to these artists benefits Girls Inc. of Santa Fe, a 501c3 non-profit which works with girls ages 5-18.
What types of arts and crafts are sold at the Girls Inc. Show?
The vendors in our show represent a wide range of medium: photography, paintings, pottery, weavings, clothing, jewelry, and much more. All the artists are required to sell only work that is made by hand – no manufactured items are sold at our show.
Where are the artists from?
The vendors in our show come from around the country, with approximately 50% of them from New Mexico.
Do the artists give a percentage of their sales to Girls Inc.?
No. The vendors rent the booth space, which benefits Girls Inc. of Santa Fe. They keep 100% of their sales. The vendors are responsible for paying the taxes on the items they sell.
Where can I park when visiting the show?
There are several municipal parking lots within walking distance to the plaza. The lot at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center even offers underground parking, which is great when it’s hot and sunny outside! Click here for a map of parking areas in downtown Santa Fe.
Is there anything for kids to do at this show?
