2023 marks the start of a new decade for the Heurich House Museum’s annual holiday festivities. We are excited to introduce Maker Month, a month-long showcase starting November 1st, culminating in the Museum’s 11th annual Christmas Markt (December 1st-3rd). Maker Month will feature artisan-led workshops, free craft stations, Mini Markts with the city’s newest makers, and a discussion with our preservation team about historic craftsmanship.
During Maker Month, learn about and support our maker community, which is composed largely of people from underrepresented communities, including women, immigrants, people of color, and queer people.
The month-long maker showcase is rooted in the museum’s belief that house museums should be dynamic and relevant to our modern communities. In 2020, the museum officially established its Small Business Development program to serve our small local manufacturers. The program builds upon the 130 year legacy of craftspeople and makers at the Heurich House - those who built the historic home and those who’ve popped up with their crafts over the last decade.
Christmas Markt and Maker Month are the museum’s largest annual fundraiser and they support our Small Business Development program which provides services year long.
