Browse one-of-a-kind sculptures, exquisite Native American jewelry, and exceptional mixed-media pieces while taking in the vibrant desert flora and fauna artfully landscaped throughout the four-acre gardens. Along with collections from more than 100 recognized artisans plus a Southwestern Food Court and packaged edibles cuisine selections, the Carefree AZ Southwest Art and Indian Market Festival also hosts live music and entertainment. Daily performances by Country & Western Singers and Native American Dancers & Storytellers take center stage at the shaded, open-air Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion. Attendees will appreciate the state-of-the-art acoustics and generous stage views.
