21st Lotus Blossoms World Bazaar – Family Day

April 2, 2016 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am EDT


Saturday, April 2
11:00am – 2:00pm (drop-in)
Binford Elementary School (2300 E. 2nd St., Bloomington)
Free and open to the public

The Lotus Blossoms World Bazaar is a free multicultural arts-and-education event for kids and families.  Created in 1996 with the help of area teachers, the World Bazaar has become a tradition in Monroe County schools — public, private, and charter — as well as in our community.  Volunteers from the Bloomington community (and around the world) present arts, music, language, and international crafts at a vibrant multicultural fair in the gymnasium of Binford Elementary. More than 30 activity stations let kids get their hands on the world….so grab your passport at the door, and go!

The Saturday World Bazaar Family Day is free and open to the public!  Featuring hands-on activities, exploration of world cultures, and live performances.  Appropriate for all ages, but especially fun for kids K-6. Children must be accompanied by parents/guardians.
