What makes the Eiteljorg Winter Market so special? We asked the artists:

The time of year is just right for holiday shoppers and Winter Market is perfect for my product.  Where would be a better place to offer purses made from cowboy boots than the Eiteljorg?  The shoppers are excited about the museum and the artists.  It’s a fabulous day and one of my favorite shows!

Winter Market is lovely because the Eiteljorg is so beautiful and pleasurable to be in. Visitors are smart and seem to truly appreciate the arts. The mood of the event is full of the holiday spirit... and that makes for a pleasant and rewarding day for everyone.

Winter Market brings together a diverse group of high-quality artists in a beautiful setting. The museum patrons, those first time museum visitors, the staff, and the fellow vendors make for an exciting, holiday-anticipating, fun-filled day that shouldn't be missed!

I’ve had the privilege of participating in Winter Market since its origin in 2002. The things that bring me back each year:
1. The quality and mix of the art for sale.
2. The audience the market attracts is fun and has the holiday spririt. 
3. The staff obviously has the artists in mind throughout planning.
4. The ease of booth set up and tear down.
5. The wonderfully helpful volunteers.
6. I just love being in that beautiful building.

I sell wholesale to many stores and restaurants, but interacting with people face-to-face at Winter Market feels right. I love to see the reaction when someone tries my crazy-delicious candy for the first time. I believe in the importance and power of local partnerships. The Eiteljorg has such an obvious respect and love for every kind of artisan – visual, musical, performance, edible. 
  
Winter Market features activities for the whole family, including Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure, a locomotive wonderland featuring trains racing past astonishingly detailed local and Western landmarks made of natural materials.

There's also our amazing Fellowship exhibit in our main gallery. There, you'll see the work of five Native contemporary artists whose work and respect in the field earned them a cash prize and the extraordinary opportunity to exhibit their work at the Eiteljorg.

Kids of all ages can also explore The R.B. Annis Western Family Experience, an interactive area that immerses visitors in the lives of a diverse group of Westerners and offers the chance to decorate and raise a totem pole, build a sod house, climb aboard a true-to-life stagecoach and more.

After a day of holiday shopping and exploring the West, take a break in the Café and warm up with some Southwestern fare. Finish your visit to the Eiteljorg with a stop in at the Museum Store, to find great gifts for your whole family.
