View some highlights from the past 16 years of the
National Puerto Rican Artisans Fair & Book Expo.
Since 2005, the Comité Noviembre Artisan Fair and Book Expo has been an opportunity for holiday shoppers to purchase unique Puerto Rican original handmade gifts and support our artesanos. In 2013, a group of dedicated artisans and cultural activists at Comité Noviembre’s National Puerto Rican Artisan Fair and Book Expo founded the Puerto Rican Institute for the Development of the Arts (PRIDA). PRIDA co- sponsored the event and continues to be an organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Puerto Rican artists and the arts. During the 2020 pandemic, when all were sheltering in place, Comité Noviembre and PRIDA were able to to present this traditional event virtually, via the ComitéNoviembreVirtualFair.org website, which allowed for year round global access to our artesanos.
In 2021, with CDC guidelines still in effect, the 16th Annual Comité Noviembre National Puerto Rican Artisans Fair & Book Expo Hybrid Event – both an in-person and online event – will continue to support participating artisans and authors in our yearly holiday tradition. We anticipate guests and shoppers to visit, share, and shop the ComitéNoviembreVirtualFair.org website, as well welcome our participating vendors at our live event on November 20th at Hostos Community College.
