"I am very excited to bring the Artisan Markets to Flagstaff, says Audrey Thacker, Market Director. In previous years this popular event, named Best Art Walk by AZCentral Readers Choice in 2012, runs Thursdays and Fridays from October through May in Downtown Scottsdale, AZ and goes on hiatus for the summer. “Due to demand from our attendees and vendors to continue our market through the summer, we have decided to bring our family friendly event to beautiful Flagstaff,” says Audrey.
The Artisan Market invites everyone in the Flagstaff community to come out and get involved by either attending, applying to be an artisan vendor, become a performer or by spreading the word. “Community support is very important to us, as our event is about and for the community,” says Audrey. Artists wishing to participate should visit the vendors tab of the Artisan Markets website for applications and additional information.
