Shopping in Sycamore-Shaded Plazas in Sedona
Named after an artistic city in central Mexico, Sedona's Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village is one of the best outdoor shopping spots in Arizona. Sycamore-shaded fountain-filled courtyards and vine-covered colonnades are home to over forty galleries, boutiques, and restaurants. (The architecture may only be a few decades old, but this is one of the most well-done 'pseudo-Mexico villages' in the U.S.) The emphasis is on Southwest sculpture, blown-glass, painting, ceramics, textiles, and jewelry. If you want to take a break from your red-rock ramblings, this is the place.

"Palet" at Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village in collaboration with Sedona Arts Center
Strolling in the evening during the Sedona Gallery Association's 1st Friday in the Galleries event, I was struck by the beauty of Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village "Pallet event in collaboration with Sedona Arts Center. The sun was setting, the temperature was perfect and the views were glorious.
Magical Moment at the Lighting of the Luminarias
One of Sedona's most cherished traditions is the Lighting of the Luminarias at Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village. At sunset over 6000 luminaries are lit by those present creating an instant sense of community and nostalgia. As Tlaquepaque glows the River of Life gospel choir's ethereal voices fill the air! if you are in the area this is one event that is never to be missed!
