Charity Bazaar 2019

The International Women’s Club of Riga (IWCR) is pleased to announce that we are hosting the 23rd IWCR Charity Bazaar.

November 24th 2019

from 11:00 to 16:00

Radisson Blu Hotel Latvija, Elizabetes iela 55, Riga.

This year the bazaar takes place at a new location

About the Bazaar

The IWCR organizes the Charity Bazaar every year based on the values of charity, community, joy and uniting the many nations in Latvia.

All proceeds raised at this event go to Latvian charities carefully selected by the IWCR.

The IWCR Charity bazaar is a popular event as unique items from different national tables and charity vendors are available for sale. Last year 31 countries participated and together we raised more than €45,000.

Visitors can discover gifts, hand-made souvenirs, toys and traditional presents from more than 35 countries.

Additionally, the Bazaar gives the chance to participate in exciting auctions and a tombola.

Give a helping hand to those in need

The IWCR Charity Bazaar is our main annual fundraising event. All the funds raised at the Bazaar will be directed to charity projects in Latvia, with special attention to low-income families, young single mothers, children in need, the elderly, and victims of violence.

In 2018, The IWCR Bazaar was very successful – we raised just over €45,000 for our charities.

We are very grateful for all contributions our sponsors help us with and all the visitors we welcome to the event to raise money for IWCR sponsored charities.


Participate in the Charity Bazaar 2019

Embassy and Country Tables

The IWCR Charity bazaar is a popular event as unique items from different national tables and charity vendors are available for sale. Last year 31 countries participated.

The Embassies stationed in Riga are very important partners to the IWCR Charity Bazaar. The money raised by tables hosted by the Embassies are a huge part of the final result of the day. Every year the Embassies and other international partners showcase fantastic goods, food, drink and specialities from their home countries.

Informational Meeting for Embassy and Country representatives

Thank you for joining our meeting Friday, 13th September. We are very glad that almost every embassy stationed in Riga attend the meeting. Your support is fundamental to ensure that we will have a successful event.

For more details on the Information Meeting, or on participating with a country specific table, please contact our Bazaar organizer Kerstin Steinberg board.iwcr@gmail.com.

To register your Embassy or country table, please fill out the questionnaire with your contact information and tables needs by September 30th.

Volunteers and Member support

The Bazaar Organization Team is thankful for every helping hand. We are very excited that our members will be part of the bazaar preparation. Together we can achieve much more. 

There are lots of things you can do to help – and have fun while helping.

We need people to prepare sellable items in advance, hosting tables at the Bazaar, asking and collecting donations for the auction and/or tombola, working with the handicraft team, and of course spreading the word to all your friends to come and do some festive shopping on the day!

If you are interested in participating in the arrangements for the bazaar, please contact Elena at vicepresident.iwcr@gmail.com.
