Tucson Museum of Art Craft Fair

The 26th Annual Tucson Museum of Art Holiday Craft Fair is this Friday through Sunday from 10 AM to 5 PM. On Saturday and Sunday, there will also be an Art Book Sale.

The fair will be on the lovely shaded patios and in the lobby of the new part of the museum at 140 North Main Street in the historic El Presidio barrio north of Presidio Park.
Some of the museum galleries are in fabulous old territorial homes. The Cordova House is believed to predate the 1854 Gadsden Purchase, which would mean it was built when Tucson was part of Mexico. You can peek inside the Cordova house while enjoying live music in the Cordova Courtyard beer garden.

120 artists will offer jewelry, ceramics, water colors, metal work and more. Fancy eats and gorgeous desserts will be for sale.

Get a start on your holiday shopping, or just enjoy the beautiful weather and music for free in a lovely downtown environment.
