This year Erie welcomes back a holiday shopping experience like no other, as the nation’s foremost artisan marketplace, Christmas in the Country, returns to the Bayfront Convention Center. After its successful 2010 debut, the event has grown dramatically, welcoming over 150 artisans and artists from across the country. They will be displaying and selling their unique handcrafted creations including gourmet foods, spa quality bath and beauty products, trendsetting jewelry, handpoured aromatic candles, eco-friendly clothing, pottery, original wall art, woodwork, home décor and holiday gift items galore.
Christmas in the Country has enjoyed a warm welcome to the Erie market. “We were very pleased that the Erie community embraced this event” said Daniel Kaczynski, from Premier Promotions, organizers of the event. “Christmas in the Country is going to be significantly bigger and better this year. We have added more artisans, cooking and artisan demonstrations throughout the weekend, visits from Santa himself and so much more” added Kaczynski. “Our goal is to make this a unique holiday tradition for years to come, and thanks to Erie, it is well on its way.”
Christmas in the Country-Erie opens Saturday November 16th from10-5pm and continues Sunday November 17th from 10-5pm.
As is the tradition with all of Premier Promotions’ events, community non-profits will benefit as well. This year, Voices for Independence, a Erie non-profit that empowers people with disabilities to promote independent living, will be on hand raising money for those in need, as well as Cody’s Wheel’s of Hope. They will be selling raffle tickets for a brand new bike. “This has always been an integral part of our philosophy,” said Kaczynski. “This is a special time of the year and we always remember the true meaning of the season.” Over the years Premier Promotions has helped various non-profit organizations raise over $1.3 million dollars.
Tickets are $6 at the door
