Thunderbird Artists Gallery

Fall is generally festival season in Arizona. The weather is perfect and winter visitors are in town, ready to shop, dine and explore. While residents can still look forward to the weather, so much else has been canceled, postponed or is still up in the air.

In a September newsletter, Denise Colter, president of Thunderbird Artists shared, “We are disheartened and extremely disappointed to report that the 27th Annual Fall Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival has been canceled due to the virus. …but look forward to hosting our winter and spring fine art festivals.”

The good news is that Valley residents can still surround themselves with fine art by visiting the Thunderbird Artists Gallery at 99 Easy Street in downtown Carefree. Look for gallery hours and additional information at, or shop online at, click on “Shop.”
