The International Community in Bucharest Unites for Charity

Join us to travel around the world in one day. A tradition that spans more than two decades, it offers a unique multicultural experience. You can buy traditional products and national delicacies from around the globe and enjoy a fun-filled day of entertainment. From 10:00 to 16:00, the programme offers something for the whole family. More than 500 volunteers from over 50 embassies and international community groups together with local businesses and international companies support the event.  

Each year, thanks to funds raised, we help vulnerable people, including children, abused women, the elderly, the homeless, the disabled, those needing medical care and others.
