Yokota Officers’ Spouses’ Club to host Annual Spring Asian Bazaar, May 2-3
Looking for that special something to decorate your home or searching for unique items to freshen things up for spring? You’ll find what you’re looking for at Yokota’s Asian Bazaar this May.
Hosted by the Yokota Officers’ Spouses’ Club (YOSC), the bazaar will be held May 2-3 at Hangar 15 on Yokota Air Base. Come and shop from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 2, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 3.
The bazaar, open to all SOFA-sponsored personnel and their families, provides an opportunity to shop at a variety of vendors underneath one roof. The bazaar will feature Japanese and Korean antiques, Asian furniture, high-quality Japanese swords and knives, handmade Turkish and Persian carpets, home décor, jewelry, Kokeshi dolls, kimonos, obis, yukata and jinbei, local and regional handmade crafts, and much more. With over 50 booths to explore, don’t miss out on this chance to speak with the vendors and artists.
To complete your shopping experience, there will be food booths run by local private organizations. Come and sample pulled pork sandwiches, snow cones, pies and cakes, burgers, lumpia, brats, BBQ brisket, and more. There will also be face painting and bouncy castles for the kids to enjoy while you shop!
Check our Facebook page (Yokota Officers’ Spouses’ Club Asian Bazaar) for opportunities to volunteer to help out at the bazaar and be included in door prize drawings.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the bazaar go back into Yokota through base organizations, the Air Force community, and even our Japanese neighbors. Last year, the YOSC donated more than $72,000 to the community, including almost $20,000 in scholarships to high school seniors and spouses pursuing higher education.
The YOSC is comprised of both military officer and civilian equivalent spouses. The purpose of the YOSC is to promote a spirit of unity through the provision of social, cultural, and welfare activities among its members.
So come out and enjoy the fun – and purchase some great stuff – at our Spring Asian Bazaar!
