Lotus Blossoms World Bazaar

The Lotus Blossoms World Bazaar Festival 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, including the Turkish Flagship Center, present arts, music, language, and international crafts at a vibrant multicultural fair in the gymnasium of Binford Elementary each spring.
