Bringing our world together in the spirit of giving

Charity funds we raise are given to a wide range of local NGOs through IWA Charity Committee grants. We help diverse groups including sex-trafficking victims, children, the elderly, disabled, ill, homeless people, refugees and more. 

Donate 
... goods: as an individual or a business you can donate goods to a national table or make a cash donation directly to the IWA Charity Committee. 
... time: volunteer at your national table — it’s a fun day with a lot of smiles!
... skills: help the organizing committee with tasks large or small, from home or on the day.

Email bazaar.iwabucharest@gmail.com to be involved and we will put you in touch with your Country Coordinator or our Sponsorship Team.

Fees? Tickets are just 10 RON (children under 10 are free). Buy lots of tickets and give them away to friends and coworkers.

Glögg & Glühwein (also known as mulled wine or hot cider) await you.

How?  Volunteers from the local and international community, diplomatic missions, cultural centers, and business partners come together to showcase their traditional food, handicrafts, decor and more.

IWA was founded in 1978, and is now a registered independent, voluntary, charitable, non-profit and non-political organization.  Make friends — explore Bucharest — support charity and join us!

Just the right place to shop before the holidays.

Kids’ Corner upstairs with fun activities.

Lots of people, fun and food!

Music and dance performances all day.

No one is forgotten! The holiday spirit of giving and sharing is our motivation.

Outreach – we give any leftover food and items donated by our community members and business sponsors to charities immediately after the Bazaar.  

Pleasure to meet you there! 

Quite a variety of entertainers and performers!

Requests for grants are welcome from NGOs across Bucharest — see our website www.iwabucharest.ro for details.  We also encourage IWA members to join the Charity Committee to see where the money goes and get involved. 

So much yummy food to try right on the spot! 

Transparency is key — All charity applications are carefully reviewed and NGOs are visited before and after funding, to ensure the best possible use of our donations. IWA is an all-volunteer association, and we are audited to ensure best financial practices. 

Unexpected treasures can be found at our country tables! 

Volunteers welcome! 

Where? The Bazaar is at Romexpo (Pavillion C3) the Bucharest Convention Centre near Piața Presei Libere, from the entrance off Blvd Expozitiei. There are several halls, Pavillion C3 is at the back-right.

Xmas is coming! Get your gifts at the IWA Bazaar!
