Carefree March 2018

Thunderbird Artists is excited to partner with the Carefree/Cave Creek Chamber of Commerce for the Town of Carefree’s final signature event of the season - the 24th Annual Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival in March. The festival will feature jeweler, Harold Lujan.

Harold Lujan has spent the last 30 years developing his own unique style of jewelry that are one of a kind sculptures in themselves. He utilizes semi-precious stones, which he cultivates himself from throughout the world, then cuts and shapes them all by hand. He is also an expert metalsmith and avid hunter, which are both reflected in his work. By combining his two passions, he has the opportunity to unite his love of working with his hands and love for the wild to create pieces that feature porcupine quills, fossilized mammoth tusk or elk and deer teeth.

 In addition to Harold, this festival features 150 juried, world-class artists displaying over 5,000 original pieces of artwork in a variety of mediums. Wine tasting, ice cold microbrews, as well as rum sampling, are offered for patrons who choose to purchase a souvenir wine or beer glass, with six tasting tickets, for $10. The event will also host food trucks and sweet treats onsite.

 The Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion will come alive with live performers and provide background music for attendees to enjoy while tasting fine wines and indulging in delicious sweets.

This fine art event, widely known as “…a Collector’s Paradise”™, will take place in the heart of downtown Carefree, surrounded by beautiful gardens emphasizing the plants and cacti indigenous to the Arizona desert.  Hours are 10am to 5pm each day. Admission is $3.00 and parking is free all weekend. Join Thunderbird Artists, world-class artists and more at the Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival, March 1st, 2nd & 3rd, 2019!
