Now in its 30th year, the bazaar, which is organized by diplomatic staff and their families, provided an opportunity for the public to shop for unique items from all over the world. This year, over 30 embassies featured products from their home countries.

The American booth, managed by a team of embassy staff and family member volunteers, showcased American products such as jeans, cake mixes, peanut butter, and chocolates.

The proceeds of this year’s bazaar will be donated to charitable organizations to help the needy and homeless.
