About Thunderbird Artists

Thunderbird Artists Mission Statement is to promote fine art and crafts with the ambiance of unique wine and music while supporting artists, merchants, and the community.

Thunderbird Artists was founded in 1981 by Judi Combs, CEO, and is still owned and operated by Judi. She began with small, local shows in Arizona until March of 1992, when she produced her first juried fine art festival in Scottsdale. The overwhelming success of Thunderbird Artists’ first festival led to additional festivals in Carefree, Sedona, Denver, Lake Tahoe, Tucson, Colorado and Scottsdale.

Thunderbird Artists has played an important role in uniting nationally recognized and award-winning artists with patrons from across the globe. A family run business, Judi Combs and daughter Denise Colter, have worked side by side with a passion for the arts and artists. Their success has been primarily due to the consistent quality of fine arts and selected fine crafts juried for each event. Festivals have developed a reputation as collector’s shows due to the unwavering standards that are applied during the jury process. They have built their reputation on trust and consistency with patrons, artists, and corporate partners. This has earned them an unprecedented level of credibility in the local business community and art industry.

For more than 40 years, Thunderbird Artists has produced almost 400 fine art events, attracting millions of patrons who share in the love and appreciation for fine art. Their goal is to provide an outstanding variety of mediums, subject matters, sizes, and price ranges that satisfy the desires of each and every patron that strolls through one of the festivals. Thunderbird Artists want people attending to find something that appeals to their liking and walk away with special memories of a first class event.
