Ohkay Owingeh Arts & Crafts Show

Guests of The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn make a point of strolling by the Native American vendors selling their jewelry under the portal of The Palace of the Governors, where they can buy exquisite pieces direct from the artists and their families.   This coming weekend is a chance to have the same experience, but on a much larger scale.

Taking place on July 17 and 18 is the Ohkay Owingeh Arts & Crafts Show (formerly known as The Eight Northern Pueblo Arts Show), the largest Native American owned and operated outdoor arts exhibition and market in the western United States.  Now in its 40th year, the event is a showcase of traditional art, Pueblo dances, drumming, flute playing and singing.  This celebration of Native American culture showcases the work of jewelers, potters, sculptors, painters and carvers, as well as dancers, drummers, flute players and singers.  The artists gather from the Pueblos of Ohkay Owingeh, Nambe, Picuris, Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, Santa Clara, Taos and Tesuque. Visitors will also be treated to an array of traditional Pueblo food - red and green chile, posole, fry bread, oven bread and more.
