19th Annual Yuletide in the Country-Inspire Your Holiday Shopping
Buy locally and with meaning, the first weekend in December and find those unique handcrafted gifts for everyone on your list, as the 19th Annual Yuletide in the Country, Holiday Artisan Market returns to the Event Center at the Hamburg Fairgrounds, Saturday December 7th and Sunday December 8th from 10am to 5 pm both days. This year the event features over 150 artists and artisans and highlights those from the Western New York Area.
“Holiday shopping at this event is important for a number of reasons,” said Daniel Kaczynski, of Premier Promotions, organizers of the event. “First, you are buying uniquely crafted items, from consumable goods, to decorative to functional, whose quality exceeds current market standards. Secondly, in most cases you are buying from those in your own community,” added Kaczynski. “Everyone understands the importance of keeping dollars local, particularly now,” said Kaczynski.
From spa quality bath products to hand poured aromatic candles; holiday décor to trendsetting jewelry; hand-blown glass sculpture to gourmet foods; elegant florals to pet gifts; handcrafted furniture to original wall art, Yuletide in the Country offers a remarkable cross-section of gift ideas. “This show really gives you one last opportunity to find gifts that are truly meaningful and you have the opportunity to meet the person whose hands made the gifts you buy,” said Kaczynski.
Holiday gift buying may be the biggest reason to attend Yuletide in the Country, but it is certainly not the only one. Attendees can enjoy live holiday music and get great holiday cooking and decorating ideas during artisan demonstrations throughout the day. From professional chefs to American Girl stylists, the artisan demonstrators at Yuletide in the Country have all the details covered.
In keeping with the tradition of all of Premier Promotions events, local charities will also be on hand raising money for their worthy causes. Hamburg/Eden Animal Rescue (H.E.A.R.T.) will hold a raffle of handmade gifts donated by participating artisans.
Tickets are available at the door and are $5 per person with children under 12 free.
Yuletide in the Country is a Christmas Wonderland – you can’t help but feel the holiday spirit! It takes place at the Event Center on the Fairgrounds in Hamburg, NY, just south of Buffalo.
