2014 HAMMS Event Set For May 3rd!


Disclosure: I received complimentary event passes to the HAMMS Event in exchange for this post.Hamms Event Minnesota 2014Think back, if you will, to this time last year. I shared some fun details about the 2013 local Minnesota market event that my little family attended, called the HAMMS Event. It takes place at the Old Hamm’s Brewery shipping docks in Saint Paul, Minnesota – which is a big, open 25,000 square foot venue that is so perfect for the event!

When is HAMMS Event 2014?

I’m glad you asked! Although you probably noticed in the title of this post, that this year’s event is scheduled for May 3rd, 2014 and runs from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

This is the wonderful part. At the HAMMS Event, local Minnesota Makers get together to offer their products to us, their local market! It’s a one-day, dog-friendly shopping and crowd funding extravaganza that the whole family will enjoy. Last year, we brought our pup, Luna! She was about 6 months old at the time, and she had an absolute blast meeting other dogs (and people) all day. We made sure she had some trips outside occasionally too so that we didn’t have any potty issues along the way… 🙂

hamms vendors #shopThe event itself originated from the idea of shopping local and supporting small businesses, along with the belief that small businesses need to stick together. Last year, they gave away $5,000 (from ticket sales and donations) to one Minnesota maker to help them take their business to the next level.

… and FOOD!

Beyond all the awesome shopping, you also have a chance to taste some great food (both from vendors and food trucks) and sip some local brew and wine! That was one of my favorite parts of last year 🙂
