The Arts and Crafts Fair is one of the main tourist attractions of Embu das Artes, located 27 km from São Paulo. A small town with less than 300 thousand inhabitants that breathes culture, Embu das Artes has its name because it has received great artists, especially Brazilian modernists, such as Anita Malfatti, Oswald de Andrade and Tarsila do Amaral.

Held since 1969, the fair occupies the streets of the city’s historic center with artists who expose and sell a variety of products, such as porcelains, sculptures, paintings, baskets, lace, jewelry, tools and decorative objects. Embu das Artes also houses the Festival do Verde (Green Fair) where ornamental plants and flowers are sold.

If you also want to know more about the history and art of Brazil, you will love the city’s museums, churches and memorials, such as the Museu de Arte Sacra dos Jesuítas and the São Lázaro Chapel. Embu also has several bars and cozy cafés with live music for you to relax after a visit at the fair.
