The Patagonia Art Walk turns 20

Janet de Acevedo Macdonald

You’re invited to celebrate the annual Patagonia Art Walk on its 20th anniversary from 10 am to 4 pm on the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 25th & 26th. It’s an excellent way to walk off your Thanksgiving indulgences, support local artisans, and take in the fresh mountain air on a vibrant autumn day.

As it has for two decades, the art walk showcases artists from Patagonia, Sonoita, Elgin, “and a bit beyond,’ adds organizer and artist Mary Sky Schoolcraft.

The displays are throughout Richardson Town Park and along Patagonia’s McKeown Avenue, its’ main thoroughfare. Visitors should come ready to shop local products at the Farmer’s Market, take in the talented live homegrown musicians, a special tap dancing troupe, and Saturday’s auction of Spirit Horse created by local artists as a fundraiser. As in recent years, the booths will be socially distanced and all local merchants will be well-stocked with amazing items.

I am continually fascinated by all there is to do, see, eat & drink in Arizona, especially in Cochise County.
