Kurazh Bazar, a monthly Kyiv-based event uniting flea market, live concerts, fun activities, bars and food courts, is going to open its 2018 season with an unusual China Start market. The guests of this year`s first Kurazh Bazar will have a chance to celebrate Chinese New Year (yes, in March!) in the light of Chinese lanterns, to taste Chinese cuisine dishes and to buy unique things from China and many other places.
Kurazh Bazar platform was founded in 2014 and started as a thrift fair. The purpose of Kurazh Bazar team was to create a space where people can sell unnecessary old and vintage things, promote new brands and just have fun. In the course of time, the event has significantly expanded, adding more and more exciting activities to its program. Nowadays, besides being a true gift for all lovers of old and rare things, Kurazh Bazar is a place to meet young designers and handmade masters as well as to try plenty of delicious food and drinks, to watch live performances and to take part in amusement activities. The event, traditionally organized at Art-Zavod Platforma creative space, also offers numerous options to participate in workshops and to learn how to create exclusive handmade items on your own.
