What is the Xmas Bazaar?

With over 60 stalls, you will surely find the perfect gift at our Xmas Bazaar. CLIP's Xmas Bazaar - a market to care & share - is our charitable market where you'll find stalls from well-known and desirable brands and student-led solidarity stalls. This unique combination makes our Bazaar a must-go for everyone who wants to add sparkle and solidarity to the season. Through the work of our Clippers in Motion, all the profits will be donated to local institutions that need all the help they can get during the Christmas Season.

 

When's the Xmas Bazaar?

Join us on November 25th, from 11h to 17h. 

Entry is free to those who bring a non-perishable food item, or €2 for everyone else.

 

It's an easy date to remember - one month 'till Christmas!

 

Why do we host a Xmas Bazaar?

The Christmas Bazaar isn't just about celebrating the holiday season; it's about giving back to the community! As is tradition, all the proceeds will be donated to charity organisations such as Ajudaris, Unicef, ATACA, the Salvation Army, and others.

 

What's there to do?

It's not just shopping! CLIP's Xmas Bazaar is a family event with plenty of activities. We've planned a day of entertainment for all ages filled with music and other performances that we're sure you want to attend.

One step closer to a cashless market

Clippies: the official tokens of our Xmas Bazaar

 

Except for brand stalls, all other stalls and the Food Court will operate on a brand-new token system - the Clippies. Upon arrival, or at any point during the event, exchange your money for Clippies at our "Clippies Stations" and enjoy the diversity and choice. 

 

Clippies are not refundable, nor can they be converted back into money. We suggest exchanging money for Clippies only as you need. All the profits will be donated to local institutions.

 

Brands stalls will not accept Clippies.

 

Green is a festive colour, too!

Our efforts to create a more sustainable Bazaar

 

  • We continue to work towards eliminating single-use plastic at the Bazaar, focusing on reusable cups. If you want a drink, please bring your cup, mug or bottle, and we'll gladly fill it up. Alternatively, you'll be able to get our reusable and returnable "Planet Aid" cups for a €1 deposit.
  • Filtered and cooled tap water will be accessible for free throughout the event at our Food Court.
  • Parking is limited, so consider alternative ways of joining us. Our bike park is looking forward to seeing you.
  • Our Clippies are reusable and will be put back into circulation.
  • All excess food will be donated to ReFood to minimise food waste.
