Little Guatemala

Little Guatemala is a family business based in Morganton, NC that serves as a bridge among neighbors in a diverse community.  The population of Morganton has seen an influx in migrants over the past decades, including a significant number Guatemalans (around 20% of total population).  This gives us a wonderful uniqueness as a community, and opportunities, but there are also many cultural barriers.  

Christian and Erica Ramazzini have a bit of a start at overcoming some of those barriers in their marriage since they come from different cultures, and it is their desire that Little Guatemala will provide a place for others to make and build new friendships that may have been difficult otherwise.  

The areas of Guatemalan culture that we will be sharing are natural connection-builders: coffee, chocolate, soccer, street food, and crafts.  Get a unique craft and connect with the local Guatemalan artist.  Join in pick-up games or soccer leagues to play side-by-side with others.  Enjoy a coffee together afterwards!  Walk down our inside “street” of local Guatemalan food vendors to get a delicious meal and engage the cook!  This is going to be fun, y’all.
