The largest Native American arts fair in Southern California, the Autry’s American Indian Arts Marketplace features 200 Native American artists from more than 40 nations. Buy sculpture, pottery, beadwork, basketry, photography, paintings, jewelry, textiles, wooden carvings, mixed-media works, and more from top Native American artists.
 
Plus, enjoy a full weekend of food, performances, children’s activities, artist demonstrations, and the annual Short Play Festival from Native Voices, the Autry’s award-winning resident theatre company.
 

 


Food

The acclaimed Auntie’s Fry Bread will cook up their fluffy, delicious, sweet, and savory cuisine. The Autry’s cafe, Crossroads West, will offer a full menu that honors the unique culinary traditions and flavors of the American West. During Marketplace weekend, access to the cafe requires event admission.

Traffic/Parking

Go Metro! Plan your trip on metro.net.  

Parking is always free at 4700 Western Heritage Way, directly in front of the Autry. Overflow parking is available across the street at the L.A. Zoo for $8-10.

To avoid congestion, we also recommend using alternative transportation such as ride-sharing services (e.g., Uber, Lyft). See maps and details.
