Christmas in the Country Returns to Fairgrounds with New ‘Return Pass’ Offer

 

A favorite Western New York tradition, the Christmas in the Country Holiday Artisan Market will celebrate its 30th season when it returns to the Hamburg Fairgrounds Nov. 6-9. And for the first time in its storied history, Christmas in the Country will offer complimentary return passes so patrons can enjoy the sights, sounds and scents of this one-of-a-kind shopping experience all weekend long!  

“We have always felt our patrons needed more than just one day to properly enjoy this event,” said Daniel Kaczynski of Premier Promotions, organizers of the event. “Now everyone has the opportunity to come back as much as they would like at no additional cost.”
