Christmas Bazaar 2018

The 22nd Christmas Bazaar organised by the IWCR took place this year on December 1st, 2018 in the Riga City Council.

It was a great cross-national cultural experience and an opportunity to taste typical food and drinks, as well as purchase original handicrafts, toys, handmade items, wine and delicacies from all around the world. The President of Latvia and the First Lady and Riga’s City Mayor with family honoured us with their presence.

This year 32 Embassies stationed in Riga participated at the event, with the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates participating for the first time. At the day of the Bazaar we raised the record sum of more than EUR 46’000 which exceeds last year’s results by 14%. We are very proud of this result and we are able to make a real difference in the lives of many underprivileged inhabitants of Latvia.
