More than 700 of the nation’s best American Indian artists invite you to share in their culture at the 54th annual Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair & Market.

Nearly 20,000 spectators visit the event each year, thanks to the renowned museum’s high-caliber slate of artists and performers.

You’ll find music, dances, demonstrations and plenty of shopping. Food abounds, too, with American Indian fare like fry bread, posole and Hopi stews, and piki bread — along with Mexican and American menu options.

Performances will go on all day Sunday on the fair’s main stage, but two to note are by Mesa’s Tony Duncan, an accomplished musician and the 2011 World Hoop Dance Champion. He’ll perform “Dances of a Painted Warrior” at 3:35 p.m. and a flute song at 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

Admission to the fair includes entry to the museum, where two noteworthy exhibitions warrant a peek: one on Apache warrior Geronimo and the other on the quirky and iconic bolo tie.

DETAILS >> 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Heard Museum,  2301 N. Central Ave., Phoenix. $20 per adult, $10 for students with i.d. and American Indians with tribal i.d., free for children 16 and younger. Admission includes entry to the museum. (602) 252-8848 or www.heard.org.
