Christmas in the Country has been recognized as the #2 Contemporary and Classic Artisan Market in the nation by Sunshine Artist, the leading publication in the art and craft event industry. A Western New York holiday tradition, Christmas in the Country, has garnered recognition as the nation’s foremost holiday artisan marketplace for almost 15 years and once again in 2011, Sunshine Artist ranked the event #1 in the country. The event has grown from a modest quilt show to a marketplace of over 400 artisans from across the country and around the globe. Attendees to Christmas in the Country will find unique and only handcrafted creations including gourmet foods, 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. The artisans are spread out over four buildings at the Hamburg Fairgrounds. As always, Premier Promotions continues to attract new and talented artisans.
