Springtime in the Country Artisan Market Blooms in 20th Year
Hamburg, N.Y. – Celebrating 20 years of fine art and artisans, Springtime in the Country returns to the Event Center at the Hamburg Fairgrounds, Friday March 28 through Sunday March 30. The event has grown substantially over the past two years, setting attendance records for patrons and participating artisans. And just as Spring promises sunshine and warmer weather, Springtime in the Country promises to be bigger and better than ever adding over 30 new artisans and unveiling the newest feature of the event, the complimentary return pass, which allows patrons to return for free all weekend long.
Ranked once again as one of the top 25 events in the nation, this year’s edition of Springtime in the Country welcomes 200 preferential artisans from across North America with products including garden art, metal works, women’s fashion, original wall art, custom furniture, designer jewelry, home décor, spa quality bath and beauty products, gourmet foods, children’s toys, pottery and so much more. Indulge yourself with something special or with Easter and Mother’s Day right around the corner, Springtime in the Country is the perfect destination for seasonal gift buying.
“This market gets better every year, thanks to the new artisans participating, but also our patrons, who see the quality and value of the products here,” notes Daniel Kaczynski of Premier Promotions. “We are definitely experiencing a resurgence in community markets as consumers are making meaningful purchases from small businesses. And this market is simply a very large collection of small artisanal businesses.” added Kaczynski.
Springtime in the Country Artisan Market features artisans from 16 different states. They include a number of exhibitors who have never exhibited in Western New York including: Lisa Boesch from Millford, Michigan (Women’s Fashion), Michelle Clouser from Milton, Delaware (wine bottle candles), Tye Gardner from Marshfield, Wisconsin (artisanal cheeses and meats), Mary Demarco from Baltimore, Maryland (hand sculpted pewter accessories), and Lisa Davis from Fulton, New York (flower wall art).
Springtime in the Country is Friday, March 28 from 4-9 pm, Saturday March 29 from 10-5 and Sunday March 30 from 10-4pm at the Fairgrounds Event Center in Hamburg.
Admission is $7 for adults and seniors with complimentary return passes available at the event’s information booth. Children under 12 are free.
