Premier Promotions of WNY is pleased to announce it will bring its nationally acclaimed spring and holiday artisan markets to the Roc Dome Arena in Rochester in 2018! The Spring Artisan Market will be held April 6-8, while Christmas in the Country-Rochester will be held Nov. 9-11.
“We are very excited to be bringing our events to the Rochester area,” said Dan Kaczynski of Premier Promotions. “The Roc Dome is a world-class facility now after having undergone a complete renovation recently. It is conveniently located, parking is abundant and the facility is beautiful. We have always targeted patrons from the Rochester area with our other events, and now we get the opportunity to bring this experience directly to them.”
The events promise to be shopping experiences, designed to engage patrons of every interest on multiple levels.
“Our events are for everyone and having been in business for over 32 years, we have a very clear vision of what makes our events unique and relevant,” added Kaczynski. “Part of it is the interaction between artisan and patron, but it is also the quality and diversity of products. We are inclusive of all craft and art at our events — including music, food, craft beverages — everything handcrafted to the highest quality.”
The events will feature handcrafted furniture, spa-quality bath and beauty products, original music, trendsetting jewelry, gifts for pets, hand-poured candles, original wall art, clothing, home décor and gift items galore. “This really gives patrons an opportunity to make their purchases meaningful and unique,” said Kaczynski.
Premier Promotions of WNY will also pair with local nonprofits at the events to aid in their fundraising efforts. “It has always been a part of who we are. We are a part of the communities we serve,” said Kaczynski.
For more than 30 years, Premier Promotions has produced high-quality, extremely successful artisan events including Springtime in the Country, Christmas in the Country 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 $4.5 million in high-quality, handcrafted goods from juried artists and artisans. These events have also helped raise more than $1.5 million for Western New York charities.
