Crafts and activities from-the-past, plus frontier family amusements, highlight events at the 46th Annual Folk Arts Fair, on Saturday and Sunday, June 1 and 2, 2019, at Sharlot Hall Museum.
Discover a simpler time while learning about essential skills of Territorial Arizona when the “Village of Traditions” returns to the shade-covered Museum for its 46th consecutive year.

The two-day event includes old-fashioned presentations of quilting, weaving, leather-working, furniture building, tatting, basket weaving, to name only a few. Visitors will see craftspeople carving, chair caning, fiber dying, lace making and woodworking, as well as wool being spun and woven into fabric.
