If you're looking to do some Christmas shopping this weekend without enduring the insanity of Black Friday, the Carefree Fine Art of the Southwest Festival is a perfect alternative.
The festival takes place all weekend -- November 23 through 25 -- and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. free of charge. It will feature over 100 Southwestern and Native American arts and crafts booths along with live music and concessions.
You can pick up some jewelry or paintings from local artists while enjoying the Carefree Desert Gardens, where the festival takes place.
