The Ultimate Holiday Shopping Experience Begins with Christmas in the Country

A grand Western New York tradition like no other, the Christmas in the Country Holiday Artisan Market will celebrate its 32nd season when it returns to the Hamburg Fairgrounds Nov. 3-6. Patrons will discover over 400 artisans spread out over five buildings, numerous food trucks for dining and the addition of “The Tavern” featuring craft beverages and spirits. Patrons can connect and interact with the creators of the countless product lines at the event.

Once again this year, Christmas in the Country will offer complimentary return passes so patrons can enjoy the sights, sounds and scents of this one-of-a-kind shopping experience all weekend long. “We have always felt our patrons needed more than just one day to properly enjoy this event,” said Daniel Kaczynski of Premier Promotions, organizers of the event. “Now everyone has the opportunity to come back as much as they would like at no additional cost.”
