The Tubac Festival of the Arts is underway now through Sunday. Roughly 20,000 visitors are expected to attend the festival, which features 200 artists showing off their fine paintings and sculptures to fun and functional ceramics, crafted wood, pottery, leather works and shimmering glass.

The festival is free to attend, but parking costs $8 at one of seven lots that accommodate visitors.
