Carefree, Arizona (PRWEB) December 01, 2012
‘If you build it, they will come’ and despite the distance twenty years ago, the 1st Annual Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival was an instant success with people coming from all over the valley.
Twenty years later driving to Carefree is faster with Loop 101, the landscape has changed tremendously until drivers approach the outskirts of Carefree and are surrounded by the Sonoran desert with large boulders, towering saguaros and elegant mountain views. It is this place where they are reminded of the tranquility and beauty of the desert.
The one thing that hasn’t changed is the fine art arena created by the award-winning producer, Thunderbird Artists. The Town of Carefree closes their streets to welcome 165 talented artists, musicians and wineries with their “Carefree style” hospitality. Their slogan is ‘Home of Cowboys & Caviar, Where the ‘Old West Meets the New’. Patrons love meeting the artists and enjoy spectacular paintings, unique scratchboard, lovely batiks, sparkling glass, stone and handsome metal, copper, and clay and mixed media sculptures. There is also medium to life-sized bronzes, mixed media sculptures, along with photography, jewelry and much more.
Another thing that hasn’t changed is the welcome experienced by people who visit the Town of Carefree, whether it is from the local boutiques, specialty shops, galleries, restaurants and outdoor cafes or business services. All who visit the Town of Carefree are treated as special guests.
