Trinity’s 75th Annual Bazaar will be held on
Saturday, October 28, 2023!
We will celebrate a milestone this year with our 75th annual Bazaar. Since its inception in 1948, Trinity’s Bazaar has remained true to its mission of donating all proceeds to selected local nonprofits.
Planning for the 2023 Bazaar is under way. Please check back for additional details and information as the date approaches.
The history of the Trinity Bazaar
The first Trinity Bazaar took place in 1948. It was a dinner and live auction to raise funds for Columbia residents who were diagnosed with tuberculosis.
“‘Buy an heirloom!’ the vestry auctioneers called out as oil portraits went on the block. Antique furniture, silver trays, watercolors, wedding dresses, sable neck pieces – all went up for the sake of mission.” Patsy Green’s History of the Bazaar
As the Bazaar has grown, we have continued our mission of raising funds to provide grants to a variety of local organizations serving the needs of our community.
The event is a one-day, family-friendly autumn event featuring:
- homemade foods such as pickles, preserves, relishes, baked goods and frozen foods
- hand-crafted items for home and wardrobe (think knit, crochet, art, and craft), gifts, plants and decorative items for home and garden.
- new and gently-used clothing and furniture, musical instruments, household decor, and ‘trinkets & treasures.’
Come to the Bazaar and stock up on collectibles, find dishes for your Thanksgiving table, shop for your Christmas list, and still have money left over for a little something for yourself.
