Diplomatic charity bazaar

Oct 14 2023

The Slovenian International Ladies' Association (SILA) is holding its 30th annual charity bazaar in the centre of Ljubljana. Organised with the help of 48 embassies and honorary consulates, the event will feature around 60 stalls selling culinary delights and traditional products from various countries.

The event will open at 10:30am in the street linking Ljubljana Town Hall and the Triple Bridge.

The Chinese Embassy is organising a spectacle called Lion Dance. It will feature children dressed in traditional costumes dancing to Chinese music.

As they proceed from the Triple Bridge to the Robba Fountain the procession will be joined by kids from sports clubs and international schools, who have prepared gifts for children in need.

Other performers include the Slovenian Folklore, and expectedly also the popular oompah Avsenik ensemble and musician Balladero (Dominik Bagola).

SILA IWCL representatives will have a stall selling "lucky bags" containing surprises prepared in cooperation with donations from companies and representatives of countries present at the bazaar.

All the proceeds from the sale at the stalls will go for charity.
