With a thirty-plus year history of community outreach, this festival has been recognized as one of Arizona’s most well-attended community art gatherings, featuring fine artists, sculptors, weavers, potters, jewelry makers, crafters, live music, and food vendors from around the region.

Located in the heart of Southern Arizona and in the Eastern region of Santa Cruz County, the communities of Patagonia, Sonoita, and Elgin comprise “the Sky Islands.” The Sky Islands tout one of the most diverse environmental ecosystems in the nation and the first and oldest vineyard in the state. Sonoita and Elgin are home to 17 wineries and distilleries, with a historic hotel that honors local ranching families and Secretariat – the 1973 Triple Crown champion.
