Marrakech (African Bazaar) 2015

29th May 2015


With its lively, interactive, educational and entertaining offerings, the African Bazaar was one of the most popular areas at Africa Day Dublin. This year, as always, the Bazaar featured Community Groups, Non-Government Organisations (NGOs), commercial concessions and food traders. The Community Groups and NGOs shared information about themselves, displayed crafts, showcased traditional costumes and some also offered hair-braiding and face-painting.
