The Ramstein Welfare Bazaar began as a community fundraiser in 1965 and has since grown into not only Ramstein's favorite annual event, but it has also grown into the world's largest military bazaar: a four-day multinational extravaganza featuring over 140 vendors and 25 food vendors.
Still a community fundraiser, every penny of the Ramstein Welfare Bazaar's net proceeds benefits the Kaiserslautern Military Community in the following calendar year. Beneficiaries of those proceeds include student and spouse scholarship recipients, Boy and Girl Scouts, youth and community programs and more.....all thanks to your generous support.
Proceeds from the past years have benefitted the KMC:
2012 Bazaar: $288,111 (Distributed throughout 2013)
2011 Bazaar: $261,498
2010 Bazaar: $271,600
In 2012, the Bazaar, a collaboration between the 86th Force Support Squadron and the Ramstein Officers’ Spouses Club, was held 13-16 September. Whether you are a Committee Member, a Volunteer, a Food Vendor, a Vendor, or an enthusiastic shopper, we thank you so much for supporting the Kaiserslautern Military Community. Without your efforts, we couldn't possibly put on such an enormous event.
