21st Annual Yuletide in the Country-Buy Local, Unique and Meaningful
Buy locally and with meaning, the first weekend in December and find those unique handcrafted gifts for everyone on your list, as the 21th Annual Yuletide in the Country, Holiday Artisan Market returns to the Event Center at the Hamburg Fairgrounds, Saturday December 5 from 10am to 5pm and Sunday December 6 from 10am to 4 pm. This year the event features over 175 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, decorative items and functional art, all of 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.
In keeping with the tradition of all of Premier Promotions events, local charities will also be on hand raising money for their worthy causes. Among them, 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 – $5 per person and children under 12 free
