2023 Folk Art Flea

The Folk Art Flea is the Friends of Folk Art’s (FOFA) best-known annual fundraising event with all proceeds supporting the Museum of International Folk Art’s (MOIFA) excellent educational programs and world-class exhibitions.

The Flea will take place Saturday, May 6 at the Santa Fe County Fairgrounds, 3229 Rodeo Drive. Although admission is free, members of Friends of Folk Art enjoy early admission to the Flea from 9 to 10 a.m. Public admission is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

All proceeds benefit educational programs and exhibitions at the Museum of International Folk Art, through the Museum of New Mexico Foundation, a private nonprofit organization. If you are not already a Foundation member, you may join here. A Foundation membership is required before joining a Friends group. Each group is $100 per individual or $150 for two people.

We are grateful to the many people who have contributed to the Flea’s success by donating gently used folk art which will be for sale at the Flea. Sponsorships will help offset expenses and, when added to the proceeds of the sale, will go to support programming and exhibitions at MOIFA.
