This year’s Bazaar has been postponed due to the pandemic. Watch this space for updates and a new date.
The Bazaar Tradition
The Bazaar has been a tradition at River Road for over 45 years. Our building and property is transformed into a well-stocked department store full of high quality, gently used, donated goods sold at great prices.
The River Road Bazaar provides affordable merchandise for shoppers from the greater community, as well as a large group of repeat bargain hunters and dealers. Our Bazaar serves to fund the work of our congregation and is a major event powered by several hundred hard-working volunteers. In our continuing commitment to the environment, we actively recycle all we can to other organizations after the sale. Join us for this incredible event when we can again have a safe gathering!
Bazaar Departments include:
Books and Music (CDs/DVDs)
Books for Children and Teens
Men and Women’s Clothing (from casual to formal, including shoes and accessories)
Sporting Goods (including bicycles)
Toys and Kids’ Stuff
White Elephant (household and miscellaneous items)
But, wait, there’s more!
- The Silent Auction is filled with valuable donated items such as fine art, china, fine jewelry, and collectables. Browse through the display of Silent Auction items, bid on your favorites, and check back to see if you are the lucky winner! (There will be several closing times throughout the day.)
- Shoppers need sustenance! Snacks, lunch, beverages, and baked goods are available throughout the day!
The Bazaar is BIG! Every room in the building, plus tents outside, house thousands of items for some great shopping. Over 400 people volunteer to make it happen. Here is a time lapse video showing the White Elephant department – from start of set-up to the end of clean-up to the set-up for our worship service the next day. It gives an idea of the event’s energy, service to the community, and great bargains.
