Annual Yuletide in the Country Artisan Market Cancelled Due to Storm Damage

 

As a result of the historic and unprecedented November snowstorm and significant roof damage to the Event Center on the Hamburg Fairgrounds, the 20th annual Yuletide in the Country Holiday Artisan Market originally scheduled for Dec. 6 and 7 has been cancelled.

“We attempted to find another venue to hold the event and explored using a patchwork of buildings that weren’t damaged on the Fairgrounds,” said Daniel Kaczynski of Premier Promotions, organizers of the event. “However, we were unsuccessful at both attempts and, unfortunately, were left with no other options.”
