September 2017

GallupARTS is now accepting applications for our 3rd annual Second Street Arts Festival in downtown Gallup on November 18 from 10am - 4pm.

We offer booth space to handmade arts & crafts and food vendors, have live music and get our hands dirty with a Kids' Craft Corner. The last two festivals have had upwards of 50 artists participate and 600 shoppers attend. Please share with your networks--we'd love to host artists from out of town! We'd also love to see you at the event--get a jump start on your holiday shopping! 


Thank you,

Rose Eason

Executive Director, gallupARTS
