A cherished Fiesta tradition for more than 40 years now, Fiesta Arts Fair routinely draws crowds of 12,000-plus to the historic grounds of the Southwest School of Art. While it spotlights upwards of 100 artists showing and selling works in all media (from jewelry and ceramics to textiles and photography), the two-day event is equally known for its always eclectic music lineup. Among standouts on this year’s bill are hyper-local mainstay Los #3 Dinners (12:30 p.m. Saturday) country traditionalist Dale Watson (2:30 p.m. Sunday) and fusion-minded barrio big band Bombasta (4 p.m. Sunday). The kid-friendly favorite also features a Children’s Art Garden with hands-on activities (including opportunities to craft Fiesta medals and crowns) and food and refreshments (beer, wine and margaritas) available for purchase from La Gloria, El Machito, Say.She.Ate, Chocollazo and Chamoy City Limits.
Price: $5-$10 ($16 for a weekend pass)
