October 9 & 10, 2021
https://www.patagoniafallfestival.org/
The 2021 event will take on a new feel in the community of Patagonia, AZ, with a reduced capacity and focus on supporting the entire Sky Islands communities. In light of the tremendous toll the pandemic has caused in communities throughout the State, the Sky Islands Tourism Association has decided to introduce the Sky Islands Artisan Market.

​The event will focus on tourism to the Sky Islands region and introduce programming to support the small businesses, wineries, and regional experiences that only Patagonia, Sonoita & Elgin can offer. The weekend will feature the main event located at Patagonia Town Park, featuring up to 100 artisans, food vendors, and exhibitors, live music, entertainment, and picnic fun. Additional programming is designed to support businesses throughout the weekend. We encourage the community to visit the artisan market and take part in visiting local wineries, shops, outdoor spaces, and restaurants.
