2017 is flying by, and the holidays will be here sooner rather than later. In other words, it’s not too early to start thinking about Christmas shopping. There, we said it.
There’s something to be said about giving gifts with a handmade touch. Finding these one-of-a-kind gifts is easy thanks to Christmas in the Country. Save the date, it’s less than a month away!
Christmas in the Country is celebrating its 33rd season this year from Thursday, Nov. 2 through Sunday, Nov. 5 at the Hamburg Fairgrounds. Come early November, more than 400 artisans will gather for a four-day shopping event. Plus, there will be food trucks as well as craft beverages and spirits to enjoy while you shop.
This is a grand Western New York tradition like no other, and one you won’t want to miss. It’s seriously the ultimate holiday shopping experience for anyone who is looking for a huge variety of anti-mall gifting possibilities. You’ll find all sorts of handmade creations all made in the USA, including home décor, gourmet foods and wine, trendsetting jewelry, hand-poured aromatic candles, children’s toys and clothing, stylish pottery, original wall art, gifts for pets, and much more.
Every dollar counts during the holiday shopping season, so take advantage of the pre-sale ticket prices. From Oct. 18 through Nov. 1, you can purchase a ticket for $8 at these locations. Why pay $10 at the door when you can pay $8 pre-sale?
Did we mention… the addition of The Tavern? Aka shopping with craft beverages and spirits in hand. That’s the dream (at least for us)!
Favorite artisans from years past and new artisans will come together for this year’s pop-up holiday marketplace. Take a sneak peek at the vendors here.
Pro Tip: Discount tickets are available Oct. 18 through Nov. 1 at select locations throughout Erie County. For a complete list of locations click here.
