The Lotus Blossoms World Bazaar is a free multicultural arts and education event for kids and families. Volunteers from the Bloomington community (and around the world) present arts, music, language, and international crafts that let kids get their hands on the world with more than 30 vibrant, high-energy activity stations.  Grab your passport at the door, and go! Visit our Facebook photo albums for snapshots of Bazaar fun.

Save the date!  Lotus Blossoms World Bazaar: March 29-30, 2019

The Friday edition of the Bazaar is open only to area 4th-graders, but Saturday’s Family Day is free to the public.  If you are interested in having your school participate in Friday’s students-only Bazaar (offered free to schools), contact Outreach Director Loraine Martin at 812-336-6599 or loraine@lotusfest.org.

Created in 1996 with the help of area teachers, the Lotus Blossoms World Bazaar has become a tradition in Monroe County schools — public, private, and charter — as well as in our community.  The World Bazaar is generously hosted at Fairview Elementary School,  located in Bloomington at 500 W 7th St.

2019 Bazaar planning committee: Loraine Martin (chair), Katie Bethel, Nancy Boatner, Nic Gonzalez, Sarah Hatcher, LuAnne Holladay, Deborah Hutton, Rachel Kucera, Tamara Loewenthal, Amanda Lueck, Laura Plummer, and Emily Stern.
