This fair has become quite the tradition, and this one marks the forty-eighth annual.  National and international buyers and visitors flock to this annual venue of Mexican folk craft, which goes back many generations.  This is a much-anticipated summer faire and earned its place in the Faires of Mexico.

If you’re an aficionado of Mexican folk art, you can’t miss the National Copper Fair!  As always, during such events, you will also find associated cultural events, including traditional dances, parades.  And don’t forget that most of the shops have their foundries in the back of their shops, and are thrilled to show off their abilities – which are nothing short of incredible.
Don’t forget that the best of the best can be seen in the National Copper Museum right off the Main Square in Santa Clara del Cobre.
