Tlaquepaque Tips (13)


Tlaquepaque is a Mexican style shopping village full of art galleries, crafts shops, hand made stuff and a few restaurants. It's quite nice to stroll along the galleries. The streets are spic and span and there are colorful flowers all around. But be warned: everything is on the pricey side. One shop stayed in my memory: the gallery of Bearcloud, an Indian artist who's paintings continue over the frame. Mmm... very special.

Several VT members mention how to pronounce the name of this village. They all seem to pronounce it differently. I'll make another guess, while it heard it be pronounced like this: "Too lah kee pah kee" :-)

Shopping and eating Southwestern Style.

Shopping and eating at the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village in Sedona is one of the pleasures of visiting Sedona -- while it isn't inexpensive -- the quality of what is on sale in excedllent. Walking among the various "casitas" and courtyards is delightful!

Shop at Tlaquepaque

Tlaquepaque is an Arts & Crafts Village located in the shade of sycamore trees on the banks of beautiful Oak Creek. Tlaquepaque is fashioned after a traditional Mexican village, Tlaquepaque, meaning the "best of everything," and has been a Sedona landmark since the 1970's. It has a variety of galleries and unique shops. Tlaquepaque was originally conceived as an artist community. The artists not only sell their art here but make it here. You may be able to witness the creation of a masterpiece. Tlaquepaque is filled with spectacular one-of-a kind art expressions in every medium from Western and eclectic bronze sculpture, functional and traditional ceramics, blown glass, contemporary and Southwestern fine art paintings, weavings, decorative arts, architectural décor pieces and large format photography. Fine contemporary jewelry, designer casual wear in silks, and leathers and unusual gift items all await the Tlaquepaque visitor. Tlaquepaque also houses fine restaurants offering European, Mexican and Southwestern foods.

Arts, Eating and Shopping at TLAQUEPAQUE

During the holiday season, the whole complex is well-lighted with Christmas lights. There are over 45 galleries, shops and restaurants in this beautiful village in the heart of Sedona. Most are open from 10 am - 5PM daily.

It's website promises a great place to experience Aricona:

Authentically fashioned after a traditional Mexican village, Tlaquepaque, meaning the "best of everything," has been a Sedona landmark since the 1970's. Its vine covered stucco walls, cobble-stoned walkways and magnificent arched entryways give you the feeling that Tlaquepaque has been here for centuries. Tasteful galleries and unique shops live in harmony with its lush natural environment where giant sycamore trees stand in testimony to the care taken in preserving the timeless beauty of the Tlaquepaque grounds. It would be hard to find more beautiful surroundings anywhere to create a shopping experience like no other!

So, what do you say? See you there --- I'll be wearing my cowboy hat...aka John "Norman" Wayne, hehehehe

Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village

Tlaquepaque is like an old Mexican style village with lots of lovely courtyards with lots of beautiful flowers and towering sycamores. We visited this place at night, so we missed seeing some the shops, but enjoyed just strolling around and taking in the lovely evening we were enjoying immensely. Lots to just stroll around and see as far as art work. Some lovely pieces on display all over the village and some really fine dinning is available here.

Open Daily 10am-5pm

Chapel of Tlaquepaque

This is a very simple, but stunning because it looks something out of a movie or story book. I can see why so many couples want to be married here and have their reception in the beautiful flowering courtyard among the lush sycamore trees. It is all so picture perfect with its lovely stained glass windows, hand carved leather pews, and this awesome mural painted by Eileen Conn that is the back drop behind the alter. They do not hold religious services here, other than weddings or special events. It is a non-denomination chapel also.

Theatre Under the Stars

Shakespeare Sedona happens in the middle courtyard of Tlaquepaque every mid-June to mid-July, featuring some of the best actors from around the US. Some came to Sedona as stars
(such as 4-time Emmy winner Michael Learned of THE WALTONS, or Kathy Fitzgerald who stars in Broadway's THE PRODUCERS), and some became stars after appearing at Shakespeare Sedona (such as Anthony Macke, who was featured in MILLION DOLLAR BABY). But mostly it's
the setting in the middle courtyard of Tlaquepaque that is the star! There is precious little to do in Sedona after the sun goes down, so treat yourself to a wonderful evening's entertainment (and these plays are ENTERTAINING!) whether or not you think you like Shakespeare. You will after seeing one of these productions. Dinner packages are available at 3 restaurants on site.

Shop & Eat in Tlaquepaque

Tlaquepaque (tuh-lah-kee-pah-kee), a quaint stucco-walled and cobble-stoned village of shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants. Not to be confused with the Tlaquepaque in the Jalisco region of Mexico, though this place may have been patterned after it. The sun streamed through the branches of the sycamore trees and onto outdoor patios where diners feasted on Mexican or French cuisine.

Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village

Its lovely rustic architecture's inspired by the dwellings of well-off Spaniards so it seems. This place is worth a visit just for kicks, even if you've only got less than an hour to spare. There are art galleries, restaurants, and craft shops. Not everything is expensive. For starters, the OAK CREEK BREWERY & GRILL has some nice beers, pizzas and really great tasting soups, for about US$15 a person, less with more diners. See my other photos with this tip. Please not that shops close at 5pm though the restaurants are open till late.
