Since 2012. Thunderbird Artists is heading west again for 2018! That is west of Phoenix Valley, in Arizona, to the City of Surprise! In 2005, Thunderbird Artists produced an extraordinary festival, set within 180 acres, on the Surprise Recreation Campus. Back by popular demand, the City of Surprise and Thunderbird Artists are once again partnering for another spectacular Surprise Fine Art and Wine Festival. Exhibitors display fine arts, fine crafts, musical entertainment and wine and micro- brew tasting.
