View some highlights from the past 16 years of the 

National Puerto Rican Artisans Fair & Book Expo.

The Comité Noviembre Artisans Fair and Book Expo has been an opportunity for holiday shoppers to purchase unique Puerto Rican original handmade gifts and support our artesanos for over 15 years. In 2013, a group of dedicated artisans and cultural activists at Comité Noviembre’s National Puerto Rican Artisans 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 present this traditional event virtually, via the Comité 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 became both an in-person and online event and continued to support participating artisans and authors in our yearly holiday tradition. 


All year round, supporters can now share and shop online by visiting the Comité website.
