Set indoors at the historic EXPO New Mexico Fairgrounds, this well-promoted festival kicks off on Black Friday, drawing tens of thousands of art enthusiasts, out-of-towners, and holiday shoppers together to enjoy a completely unique and festive event! The Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival Holiday Show is a popular tradition for the city of Albuquerque, as well as exhibitors.

Loyal patrons bring family, friends and out-of-town guests to get into the spirit of the season at this festive event.

What better way to “shop small” on Small Business Saturday!
