KAMA DC and the Heurich House Museum present an “Immigrant-Owned Mini Markt” on Saturday, July 29th from 3-7 pm in the Museum's biergarten. Shop from 10 immigrant-owned small local businesses at a special Mini Markt curated by KAMA DC, a grassroots volunteer-led organization dedicated to promoting cultural exchange and celebrating the skills and stories of immigrants in the DMV.
The museum was once the home of brewmaster Christian Heurich, who immigrated to the U.S. in 1866 from Germany. Today, the museum explores the American Dream through the legacy of historic Heurich household staff, brewery workers, and the craftspeople who built the home — many of whom were immigrants — while also supporting DC’s modern workers through our Small Business Development program, creating a more equitable path to success for small-scale manufacturers.
This event is free to attend. Registration is recommended, but not required. Donations may be made to KAMA DC during online registration or at the Markt.
Vendor applications are due June 30th. Vendors can apply through the Heurich House Museum’s Mini Markt application and select the KAMA market in the application. This market is only open to vendors from immigrant communities. Vendors will be announced in early July.
1921, a Biergarten features fresh local craft beer from DC breweries and an opportunity to explore HOME/BREWED, an exhibit featuring 1,000 objects from the historic Heurich brewery. Masks are recommended in indoor spaces. The 1921 Biergarten supports the museum’s Small Business Development programs.
