In the land of enchantment there is an extraordinary place where art has made its mark for more than a century. This place is Taos, a town of extraordinary diversity and creative talent.  Every year for the last 49 years, Taos has celebrated the arts with the Taos Fall Arts Festival. 

The Taos Fall Arts Festival began in 1974 as a venue staged at the homes of patrons who wanted to promote local art. Over the years the festival grew in popularity, and the venues have changed, but the mission has remained constant: to celebrate the visual arts and artists of Taos County; to encourage the growth of emerging artists; and to continue hosting an event where artists could
come together, exhibit, and market their work for the delight and appreciation of the community.
