The Bazar International runs at the LuxExpo in Kirchberg from Friday 11 November until Sunday 13 November.

Our favourite Bazar International is back in town! Every year, hundreds of volunteers come together to celebrate Luxembourg's diversity, and raise money for charity work (43 humanitarian projects in 2022) across the world.

The Bazar's humanitarian projects are all aimed at fighting poverty throughout the world, with some projects focusing on medical assistance, orphanages, senior centres, and many more, with the main project this year being a medical centre in South-Sudan.

It is also the only place where you can combine a tour around the world (around 60 countries!) with exotic food, delicious drinks and a unique shopping experience! Behind each stand you will meet people from that country.

This year's edition also features some new countries: Welcome Kenya, Colombia and Afghanistan!

Experience traditional dance performances and live music as well. An overview of performances will soon be published on the Bazar International website.

On Sunday, kids will have the possibility to meet and greet the real Kleeschen (Santa Claus) between 12:00 and 14:00.

RTL Today and RTL Today Radio at the Bazar!

Come and meet the faces and voices behind RTL Today and RTL Today Radio! We'll be waiting for you in the main hall with tons of great activities.

Try out our classic festival game "Cornhole", participate in an exciting treasure hunt and maybe you'll get the chance to win an iPad or iPhone. We also have some things to give away, so come and have a look and say hi!

Have a listen at the behind the scenes interviews

RTL Today Radio had the pleasure of talking to event President, Carmen Decalf, and why she thinks this year's edition could be the best one yet! Bazar VPMassimo Amato also came by and explained why he considers the Bazar International to be the "Soul of Luxembourg" where you can "Shop for a Cause", with 42 charities benefiting from the items that are sold.

Committee member Charlotte de Vreeze-Nauta, who some of you might know from her weekly 'Your Voice' articles, appeared on the Home Stretch. She chatted with Melissa about the inner workings of the event, including how the decisions for charities are made.

Sam Steen had a chat with Stephan Porchet from the Swiss stand, who described the Bazar as "A world tour without any CO2 emissions". Sam also welcomed Kauser Arif from the Pakistan stand, who has been a part of the Pakistanstand for more than 35 years.

We also invited over some of the lovely ladies from the Indian stand for our RTL Today Eats The World series, where we tried some authentic Indian street food!
