The 2021 holiday season at The Buffalo History Museum is going to be unlike any other previous year. That’s because the Museum has got a lot of surprises in store. Not only did it recently unveil the stunning Portico Gallery, it also announced that there would be an inaugural Makers Market held on Friday, November 26 from 3 pm to 8 pm, and Saturday, November 27 from 10 am to 4 pm. This new market pop-up concept will take full advantage of the spacious offerings at the venue, by utilizing all three floors of the museum.
“This event aligns perfectly with Black Friday and Small Business Saturday,” said History Museum Executive Director Melissa Brown. “Our guests can shop and support local while finding the perfect gifts for the holiday season in an enjoyable, relaxing setting.”
The two-day event will feature local artists, authors, and crafters, including:
