About The Fall Festival
2017 Event Dates: October 13, 14, 15
Twenty-eight years ago the Town of Patagonia held its first fall festival to showcase extraordinary talent and artistry against the beautiful backdrop of our community, nestled at over 4000 feet in the mountains of Southeast Arizona.
Now the festival attracts more than 15,000 visitors to our lovely tree-shaded park in the center of town over a festive 3-day weekend, presented by the Sky Islands Tourism Association. Apply now for 2016 vendor selection.
Our arts and crafts exhibitors are invited to bring you the most unique and unusual high quality desirables, produced with excellent care, creativity and craftsmanship.
The festival hosts top-of-the-line entertainment on each day of the event. Entertainers represent a great mix of styles sure to please every taste.
Our festival also features food and beverage vendors for every taste along with the offerings of Patagonia’s well-known eateries such as the Velvet Elvis, Gathering Grounds, Wild Horse, Mercedes, Ovens of Patagonia, and the Wagon Wheel Saloon.
Room is also available for not-for-profit and information booths as well as the famed Patagonia Library book sale.
The festival helps support the activities of the Sky Islands Tourism Association (SITA) such as their new Visitor’s Center. It also helps support the Park Preservation Fund of the Town of Patagonia. Funds will be utilized to preserve, maintain and improve the park’s trees and landscaping as well as its facilities.
