Of all the sights and sites in Sedona, visitors would be most remiss to miss the likes of Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, where fine local restaurants and boutiques are clustered within the charmingly old-fashioned Spanish architecture. Built over forty years ago in the image of Abe Miller’s vision of recreating Old Mexico in Sedona, Tlaquepaque remains a haven for artisans and appreciators of art, where finely crafted goods, art, and foods are offered year-round, and festivals are held on a regular basis—particularly festivals celebrating Mexican and Native American heritage. Read on to learn more about this vintage village and its cultural offerings for visitors!
Boutiques, Galleries, and More
Visitors to Sedona will enjoy the immense variety of wares, art, dining, and drinking options available in this miniature town within a town. Nineteen eclectic art galleries are nestled within the walls of Tlaquepaque, featuring pieces ranging from blown glass and traditional ceramics to realistic wildlife bronzes and Western sculptures. Other cultures also gather here, in the form of rugs made in the Navajo, Tibetan, and Persian traditions, Kachinas made of precious stones, and Native American jewelry and weavings.
Clothing connoisseurs will relish the one of a kind finds from Tlaquepaque’s small clothing and accessories boutiques, while anyone can appreciate desert-themed home décor and locally-made wines, liqueurs, and spirits. There’s also a uniquely Sedona toy store that kids are sure to love, outdoor gear for hiking Sedona’s varied terrain, and an innumerable amount of other specialty stores. No matter where you go, you’re sure to find a splendid piece of Sedona to take home with you!
After a long day of exploring all of the shops and galleries that Tlaquepaque has to offer, stop by Oak Creek Brewery for a draft of superior quality craft beer with a side of delicious food, or by Secret Garden Café for a cup of coffee and light fare.
