Hope Fair

  • May 30 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

  • | free

 

More than 100 artisans, craft makers, chefs, and delicatessens will have their goods exclusively available for this unique event. It is the perfect opportunity to satisfy gourmet desires and to find very special gifts for your loved ones.

The Hope Fair was created in 2014 on the principle of community, and to help make Bangkok a smaller megalopolis. It is a unique fair where clients can talk directly to the suppliers, creators and makers. A variety of products will be available from food to homewares, clothes, cosmetics and art.

Hope Fair vendors are selected by their story, their product, and what they can offer the community. Many of products are home or hand made with love, purpose and passion. Foods are mainly organic, healthy, natural and, in some cases, directly from the source, something that is difficult to find in Bangkok. A diverse range of unique homewares which embody the artist’s passion and vision can be found. Cosmetics and heath products made from natural ingredients will be available, as well as wellness and healthy lifestyle tips. The kids are not forgotten with a selection of educational games, trendy clothes, fun costumes, and amusing activities available.

All the participating vendors donate to the Mercy Centre of Klong Toey. In the Bangkok slum, the Mercy Centre is a shelter for street kids with five orphanages, a hospice, a home for mothers and children with HIV/AIDS, a 400-student kindergarten, a community meeting place, and a serene haven in the slums with small gardens and playgrounds. The organization has 23 preschools in total, supporting over 3000 children, 5 days a week, in different small slum communities. The Hope Fair community, with the support of the Rembrandt Hotel, has since its creation raised more than 300 000 THB and will continue to do so.

During the event the Hope Fair will be accepting donations on behalf of the Mercy Center. Any unwanted clothes, household items, shoes, toys and any other items no longer wanted can be brought to the Rembrandt Hotel. This is a perfect occasion to clean out those cabinets at home and start the new year fresh, while giving to those in need.
