DC Makers Shopping Market: Friday, December 2, 4 – 9 pm
Holiday Shopping: Sunday, December 4, 11 am – 5 pm
(I won't be there Saturday)

Each December, the Heurich House Museum welcomes the public to celebrate the winter season during its annual Christkindlmarkt. The museum honors the Heurich family’s German heritage by recreating a traditional German public Christmas market in its garden.

This holiday shopping event, Dupont Circle’s only holiday market, will feature goods from over 40 local artisans, including jewelers, ceramicists, chocolatiers, makers of housewares, and more. Guests are invited to visit the market and tour the seasonally decorated historic house.

This year’s event will feature special evening hours for a DC Makers Market on Friday, December 2 from 4-9 pm. Vendors featured on Saturday and Sunday are from DC, Maryland and Virginia. Shop local this holiday season!

Want to beat the crowds? A VIP shopping hour for a limited number of guests will run from 10-11 am on Saturday and Sunday. Get first pick of all the maker’s wares and be the first to tour the museum when it opens at 11 am.
