Virtual Artisan Market
Nov. 7th-8th, 2020
The 36th Annual Christmas in the Country Holiday Artisan Market will be held…from home this year. Visit Booth Central for event times and dates. Artisans updated daily! You can still make your holiday shopping meaningful and unique, all while supporting America’s finest small business artisans!
Christmas in the Country has been cancelled for 2020. Perennially ranked as one of the top 5 Artisan Markets in the nation, Christmas in the Country will re-format into a virtual shopping experience for patrons and artisans.

“We had held on to hope that circumstances regarding Covid might change, but unfortunately they did not,” said Dan Kaczynski of Premier Promotions of WNY, organizers of the event. “This year has been so challenging for everyone and our hope is the virtual addition of Christmas in the Country can bring some holiday cheer to our patrons and artisans,” added Kaczynski. The massive artisan market brings together over 450 small business artisans from across the country for a four day shopping experience like no other. Unfortunately, according to Kaczynski, the vast majority of these artisans have been unable to participate in any events and therefore are largely without income.
In 2021, the 36th Christmas in the Country opens Thursday and Friday, November 4 and 5 from 10am-9pm each day, Saturday November 6 from 9am-6pm and Sunday November 7 from 10am-4pm in five buildings on the Fairgrounds in Hamburg.
Throughout the history of Christmas in the Country, giving back to the community has always been an integral part of the event. This year, the participating non-profit groups include: The PUNT Foundation, Churches in Action, Hamburg Eden Animal Rescue Team (H.E.A.R.T.), Variety The Children’s Charity of Buffalo and the Hamburg Presbyterian Church. “Helping those in need has always been who we are, both as a company and people of this community,” said Kaczynski.
For more than 36 years, Premier Promotions has produced high quality, extremely successful artisan events including Springtime in the Country, Springtime in Rochester, Christmas in the Country, Christmas in the Country-Rochester and Yuletide in the Country. The events are consistently ranked among the Top 100 artisan shows in America, by Sunshine Artist magazine. Last year, more than 90,000 visitors attended these events purchasing more than $4 million in high quality, hand crafted goods from juried artists and artisans. These events have helped raise more than $1.8 million for Western New York charities.
