Arts & Culture Family Featured Music & Events Fara Illich March 2, 2010

If you aren’t festival-ed (yep, festival-ed is a word) come to the Heard Museum this weekend for Arizona’s largest Indian market! If you don’t, you’ll pass by and hear all the music and see dancing and amazing artwork (both traditional and contemporary) and stand on the sidewalk with a frown on your face!
