Most of our Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village Shops are open daily 10:00AM-5:00PM. Our restaurants stay open later into the evening, such as El Rincon Mexican Restaurant, which states open until 9:00PM on Friday and Saturday. Each shop’s hours vary, on weekends and observed holidays. You can Browse the Shop pages in the Directory for exact shop hours. If there is a specific shop, restaurant, or gallery you are interested in, please feel free to call ahead to be sure.
Parking while visiting Tlaquepaque is free. There are several parking lots surrounding the property and one additional lot, across the street, at our Tlaquepaque North location.
RVs, 5th wheelers, and tour buses can easily be parked in the Portal Lane lot, located directly northwest of Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, while you enjoy and explore Tlaquepaque. Please note, parking overnight is not permitted.
We are a pet-friendly destination. Tlaquepaque just asks that you keep your pets on a leash at all times and always clean up after them. There are water sources next to the restrooms if your furry friend needs a drink in the heat. And just a reminder, in Arizona it’s not a good idea to ever leave a pet in your car, windows cracked or not. The weather in Arizona can get extremely hot very quickly and unexpectedly, and we don’t want anything to happen to your furry family member.
Places to Stay in Sedona
There are several local hotels to fit all budgets. You can stay at: Uptown Sedona, which is close to where we are located, West Sedona which is a short 10 minute drive away, or the surrounding cities, such as The Village of Oak Creek, Oak Creek Canyon, and further out in beautiful cities like Cottonwood, to the southwest, and Flagstaff, to the north.

High Season & Planning Ahead
Sedona, known for its beauty and majesty, attracts people from all around the world. The high season is usually when Arizona weather is its most temperate and not too hot, which is in February, March, and April. Additionally, three day weekends such as the 4th of July and Memorial Day will pack Sedona’s roads and can make it interesting to get around. While any time of the year is the perfect time to visit Sedona and Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, it’s good to know what to expect and plan ahead during high season and national holidays.
