Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance, SAACA, will host La Encantada Performing and Fine Arts Festival with Westcor on Saturday, Feb. 5 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for a unique, one-day event, presenting displays from local art, music and theater groups.

Irish music, Spanish flamenco and Native American dance with storytelling will ignite the festival, as attendees browse colorful paintings, unique jewelry, handmade textiles and other one-of-a-kind works of fine art.  

Children can enjoy the live entertainment or fill their day with free arts and crafts activities, while parents can relax in the mall’s elegant atmosphere.

Visitors can satisfy their hunger at one of the mall’s many dining options. La Encantada, 2905 E. Skyline Drive, features more than 55 fine shops and restaurants in an elegant, outdoor setting.

In the past, the La Encantada Performing and Fine Arts Festival has been an overwhelming success for the hundreds of participating artists over the years. Now, this festival returns to the community once again with a juried show, offering artists the experience of gaining exclusive exposure with less competition between mediums.     

La Encantada Fine Art Festival will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 5 in the lower level courtyard of La Encantada Shopping Center, 2905 E. Skyline Drive. Admission is free.
