2019 Christmas in the Country – Rochester

Christmas in the Country-The Ultimate Holiday Shopping Experience Comes to Rochester!

This year the nation’s #1 rated Artisan Market-Christmas in the Country-comes to the Rochester Dome Arena for the ultimate holiday shopping experience, November 15th-17th.  The 3 day event features over 200 artisans and artists from across the country.  They will be displaying and selling their unique handcrafted creations including gourmet food, wine and spirits, 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.

“This market gives shoppers a unique experience.  There are all the sights, sounds and scents of the holidays, but all of the products are handmade by the artisans at the event—so they truly are one of a kind,” said Dan Kaczynski of Premier Promotions, organizers of the event.  “The interaction between patrons and artisans is something you just cannot find on an ordinary shopping trip.  And most importantly, your holiday gift giving will be meaningful and inspired.” added Kaczynski.

Christmas in the Country-Rochester opens Friday November 15th from 4-9 Saturday November 16th from 10-5pm and continues Sunday November 17th from 10-4pm.  Complimentary return passes are available each day.

As is the tradition with all of Premier Promotions’ events, community non-profits will benefit as well. 

“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 $1.5 million dollars.

Admission is $8 for adults, children under 12 are free.  Complimentary return passes are available at the information booth, $6 pre-sale tickets are available at select locations, click here for more info.
