Fair of Arts and Crafts, enjoy your weekend at Praça da Repubblica!

The fair of arts and crafts that happens on Sundays at the Republic Square is the event for which the site is known internationally. It started in the late 40's, with collectors who were meeting there to exchange stamps, banknotes, coins and medals. In the '60s, artists and craftsmen began to exhibit their work at the site and then came the movement of hippies settle there too. The fair Art and Crafts hosts today over 600 stalls and craft markets coming from all over Brazil, as well as neighboring countries.
