Events are the lifeblood of a society. They are occasions that gather people together united in a common theme, cause or celebration. Events bring people together to pay tribute to their heroes, to raise awareness of a cause or to witness history in the making. Events can be as simple as a child's kindergarten graduation or as dramatic as the Super Bowl. It doesn't matter what your preference is or even if it is constantly evolving. What does matter is that you are "experiencing" something that will give you great satisfaction and a lifetime of memories.

Hamburg, NY14075
Christmas in the Country has been recognized as the #1 Contemporary and Classic Artisan Market in the nation by Sunshine Artist, the leading publication in the art and craft event industry. Perennially ranked as one of the top 5 events in the nation, Christmas in the Country retakes the number one position it previously held in 2015. Now, celebrating its 34th anniversary and drawing over 60,000 visitors in four days, the event has grown from a modest quilt show to a marketplace of over 400 artisans from across the nation. The event now incorporates a sizable food truck rodeo and The Tavern—an area devoted to sampling of craft beer, boutique wineries and small batch spirits. “Our patrons and artisans have made Christmas in the Country what it is,” said Dan Kaczynski of Premier Promotions, organizers of the event. “And that is simply the best Holiday Market in the US,” added Kaczynski. Given the size and scope of Christmas in the Country, it is difficult to see and do everything in one day. Premier Promotions offers a complimentary return pass for every day of the event. “It has had great response from our patrons and they recognize the unique value in paying only one admission charge for the area’s largest and most diverse artisan market,” said Kaczynski. Attendees to Christmas in the Country will find unique and only handcrafted creations including gourmet foods, spa quality bath and beauty products, trendsetting jewelry, handpoured aromatic candles, eco-friendly clothing, pottery, original wall art, woodwork, home décor and holiday gift items galore. “This is an opportunity to make gift buying and shopping very meaningful,” said Kaczynski. The artisans are spread out over five buildings at the Hamburg Fairgrounds.

Dothan, AL36301
Since 1938. The National Peanut Festival, the nation's largest peanut festival, is held in Dothan, Alabama each fall to honor local peanut farmers and to celebrate the harvest season. Located in the southeast corner of Alabama, Dothan is known as the "Peanut Capital of the World" and is a prime location for growing peanuts. In fact, if you're in Dothan you're in the heart of peanut country, considering the majority of all the peanuts grown in the United States are grown within a 100 mile radius of Dothan. A festival honoring the peanut was inaugurated on a near freezing Thursday, November 10, 1938. The three day event included a pageant, parade, historical play and grand ball. The guest speaker was Dr. George Washington Carver. Dr. Carver was a modest, unassuming man from the Tuskegee Institute who gained international fame with his development of over 300 products from the peanut. The peanut festival was celebrated annually through 1941, but was postponed until after World War II. In 1947, the first post-war festival was presented and has continued every year since. Throughout its history, the festival has been held in various locations, with most of its years at the Houston County Farm Center. The National Peanut Festival has been at its current location, the fairgrounds on US Highway 231 South, since 1999. With over 200 acres, 2 exhibit buildings, an amphitheater, an open air arena and an Ag complex, the fairgrounds are now capable of hosting year-round events and further promoting agriculture in the Wiregrass area, in addition to hosting the yearly harvest celebration. The parade is held at 9am on Main Street the last Saturday of the event.
