More than 700 of the most outstanding and successful Native American artists will show off their work in this highly-anticipated fair and festival at Heard Museum in Phoenix. Exquisite offerings of Native American jewelry, textiles, sculpture, pottery, paintings, carvings, katsina dolls and beadwork, which represent unique talents and technical expertise honed over generations, are up for sale. Why not journey home after your stay at Westbrook Vacation Rentals with beautiful mementos or gifts for family and friends?

Phoenix offers many cultural things to do, but this event has it all:  There will be exciting music, authentic dance performances, and artist demos, throughout the weekend. A special feature, “Apache Peoples and Arts” honors the bands of the Apache people featuring acclaimed elders. There will be storytelling by Apache entertainer Ken Duncan and even a wikieup!

Culinary offerings include the traditional fry bread, Hopi piki bread, and Apache acorn soup will be served. Mexican and American fare are available, too.

Best of Show

Best of Show, a gala event at Heard Museum, is an annual tradition that will be held on Friday evening, March 5th, before the opening of the Arizona Indian fair, on March 6th.  Evening events include a silent auction showcasing a wide variety of art and jewelry donated by some of the most famous Native American artists, a gourmet catered buffet dinner, and jazz sounds by Larry Redhouse Trio. The last segment of the evening will be a first time treat: The Aravaipa Crown Dancers from the San Carlos Apache Tribe, considered mountain spirits that teach the Apache how to live in harmony, will be honored guests, and will perform a special evening dance.
