The great Monaco Red Cross Bazaar is back this year and will take place under the Chapiteau de Fontvieille on Friday 21 October and Saturday 22 October 2022. This traditional ‘braderie’ is a chance for people in Monaco and its surrounding municipalities to snag a great deal for a good cause.
A hit event for the benefit of the Monegasque Red Cross
Since the first Red Cross bazaar, which took place in 2003 in front of Monaco’s Red Cross headquarters, the event has continued to expand. This year, 200 volunteers will be mobilized to make sure everything runs smoothly. Last year, 3,000 visitors came to the bazaar. Profits from last year’s event totalled to almost €100,000, which aided many actions carried out by the Red Cross.
The Grande Braderie de la Croix Rouge allows anyone and everyone to spend a time with their community and discover the values of the International Movement of the Red Cross and Red Crescent in a fun and exciting atmosphere.
The two-day event promises to have something for everyone, all at very low prices, with luxury clothes for babies, children, women and men. There will also be leather goods, fashion accessories, childcare equipment, toys, furniture, decorative objects, jewellery and more. The bazaar is a great opportunity to find treasure, all while being environmentally responsible.
