Sedona Arts & Culture

Sedona packs quite an artistic punch.

Maybe it's the red landscapes. Maybe it's the fiery sunsets. In any case, something about the area has inspired generations of artists to create utterly gorgeous paintings and sculptures. This is the place to go in Arizona when you want to buy new artwork for your home, or visit a gallery packed with wall-to-wall masterpieces.

Treat yourself to a leisurely trawl through some of this desert town's galleries, keeping in mind that visiting them all might take a while - there are over 80 to get through. This is one of the state's most active artistic centers, hosting events throughout the year and opening up its gallery doors on the first Friday of every month for free.

Browse the independent stores at "Gallery Row" on State Route 179 or spend a day shopping in Sedona's stylish uptown. Get lucky with your timing and you could end up at one of the town's many festivals, which include a long-running film festival.

To help you narrow down your artistic itinerary, we've picked out three of Sedona's cultural highlights.

Tlaquepaque - Arts and Crafts Village

  • Wander the numerous galleries clustered in this enclave, all of them bursting with creativity.
  • Come prepared to snap plenty of photos of the area itself, which resembles a traditional Mexican village.
  • Take your time to explore over 45 independent shops, each selling artisan arts and crafts. Keep your eye out for clothes stores and restaurants too.

Sedona Arts Festival

  • Visit Sedona in October to take part in its lively annual arts festival, where artists flock to the town from all around the country.
  • Browse stalls run by hundreds of different artists selling ceramics, drawings, glassware, jewelry and... well... just about everything you can think of, really.
  • Interactive events, food stalls and live music add to the electric atmosphere of the festival. Younger visitors can get creative in the Kids Zone.

Sedona Heritage Museum

  • The town's rich history is documented in a museum built on an old farmstead. Browse the exhibits in a farmhouse, tractor shed and fruit packing facility to learn about Sedona's past.
  • Bring your children and pick up an activity book for exploring the buildings. Kids will love seeing a historic firetruck and old farming machinery.
