The 5th annual HAMMS Event—short for Help A Minnesota Maker Succeed—is a Minnesota-made market with a twist. Attendees pay a small fee ($10 online or $15 at the door) and your collective support is awarded to one of the makers via a random game of chance. Up to $5000 in event ticket sales and donations will be awarded to one of the Minnesota makers to invest in their business. The HAMMS Event, established in 2013, is an annual maker market centered around the support for Minnesota entrepreneurs behind local brands. HAMMS is also an opportunity to dine, imbibe local beer and spirits, and mix and mingle, all while supporting the Minnesota maker community. 2017 makers include Minnesota fashion brands Tessa Louise (pictured), Anywhere Apparel, and Tradition Creek.
