Maestros del Arte scores again!

Last weekend’s 13th Feria Maestros del Arte was a whopping success thanks to the astonishing selection of first-rate handicrafts and folk art put on display, record attendance boosted by three days of flawless fall weather and the dedication of the event’s organizers, volunteers and supporters.

 Exhibitors racked up big sales as shoppers went wild scooping up stunning goods brought to their doorstep by outstanding Mexican artesanos from near and far.

Unique cultural exchange experiences were the highlight for visiting craftsmen and women and the local residents who opened their doors as lodging hosts. And the fair earned one more notch in its belt for promoting and preserving the country’s rich artistic heritage.
