Only a few days left before Christmas, are you still cramming to tick all the boxes from your Holiday shopping list? Worry no more, as the World Bazaar Festival is back this year to give you the ultimate Christmas shopping experience!
What is the World Bazaar Festival?
World Bazaar Festival is an annual Christmas bazaar established in 2001. It offers a wide variety of gift ideas, from fashion items, sweet treats, cosmetics, household items, gadgets, sumptuous meals, and more!
The bazaar, which has been a part of the modern Filipino holiday tradition, is not your typical Christmas bazaar. It also supports and gives back to numerous Filipino families through ABS-CBN Foundation, making it the longest-running annual charity bazaar in the country to date.

For its 21st edition, World Bazaar Festival is eager to give Filipinos a merrier Christmas shopping experience after being stuck in the pandemic for over two years.
This year’s World Bazaar Festival theme, “Believe in yoursELF,” promises to showcase an ultimate Christmas Dreamland like you’ve never seen before.
During its grand opening on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022, at the World Trade Center in Pasay City, World Bazaar Festival Founding Chairman Joseph Ang officially welcomed shoppers to a bigger and brighter Christmas shopping destination.
“Over the years, our mission remains the same, to host an event where people of all ages gather together and celebrate the Holidays in one big bazaar experience,” Ang said.
“This event is a true testament to the overwhelming support of the Filipinos, and as we continue to be the longest charity bazaar in the country, we remain humbled to our commitments to serve you with purpose,” he added.
The grand opening was graced by Pasay City Mayor Hon. Imelda Calixto-Rubiano, ABS-CBN Foundation Managing Director Roberta Lopez-Feliciano, and other diplomatic cores, who also joined the event’s traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony.
