Nearly 80 of the finest Artists and Artisans in New Mexico meet in the friendly Village of Placitas the weekend before Thanksgiving.


The Placitas Holiday Sale has been one of the most popular arts & crafts fairs in New Mexico for the past 38 years. Some of the finest Artists and Artisans are juried into The Placitas Holiday Fine Arts and Crafts Sale, which has been held every year the weekend before Thanksgiving in the Village of Placitas, New Mexico.

There will be no Holiday Sale in 2020. The Committee that has organized the show is passing the baton to a new group of artists who will carry on in 2021. They will be assisted by the old Committee for the next Holiday Sale to help them settle in. We're confident the new Committee will uphold the traditions of quality, comradery and fun the artists and patrons have come to expect.
