Cultural Survival Bazaar at The Plaza outside the Science Center

A Festival of Indigenous Arts, Music, and Cultures from Around the World.

The Cultural Survival Bazaars are a fair trade international market celebrating the world’s diverse cultures. The Cultural Survival Bazaars feature guest artists, traditional and contemporary art, and world music.

Take a trip around the world in just a few hours. Meet Indigenous artists and fair traders who specialize in jewelry, weavings, instrument making, painting, pyrography, sculptures, embroidery, clothing design, textiles, beading, pottery, carvings, and music. 

Shop unique-handmade art, jewelry, clothing, crafts, decor, tribal rugs, and much more from communities throughout Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Learn about the people and stories that make these items so unique and special. 

Through displaying and selling their art work to the public at the bazaars, artists share their traditions and knowledge, while educating the public about the challenges faced by mass production and environmental degradation.

Enjoy FREE music performances from Ecuadorian Kichwa Band Yarina, music of Mali by Sidy Maiga and the Afrimanding, numerous presentations, educational displays, craft-making demonstrations, and food.

The proceeds of the Bazaar benefit the livelihoods of Indigenous Artists, support many projects in their communities, and fair trade.
