This year, the nation’s number one rated artisan market — Christmas in the Country — returns to the Rochester Dome Arena for the ultimate holiday shopping experience from Nov. 12-14! This three-day event will feature 150 artisans and artists from across the country displaying and selling their unique handcrafted creations including gourmet food, wine and spirits, spa-quality bath and beauty products, trendsetting jewelry, hand-poured aromatic candles, stylish 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 and customer service 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.”
Christmas in the Country-Rochester will be open Friday, Nov. 12 from 4 to 9 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 13 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Complimentary return passes will be available each day. Additionally, special measures have been taken to ensure patrons enjoy the event safely, including contactless online ticket sales, additional spacing between booths, recommended mask wearing and enhanced cleaning procedures.
Presale tickets are available at select locations. Tickets will be available at the door and coupons for discounted admission are available at www.wnypremierpromotions.com.
