The Village is the brain child of businessman Abe Miller. In the 1970s, Miller instigated and led the project to completion. Miller was something of a fanatic world traveler. He especially loved the look and feel of Mexico and he drew from that to create this charming center. Although he imagined this Mexican village, he named it after an actual village in Mexico: Tlaquepaque.
Since that time, Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village has remained one of most popular tourist attractions in all of Arizona. The management and staff guarantee that you will not want to leave this comfortable, creative environment. Although there are other arts areas in Sedona, this is widely considered the very best of them all.
