Monaco annual Ecumenical Kermesse returns

Monaco annual Ecumenical Kermesse returns

By Cassandra Tanti - December 4, 2019

Monaco’s yearly church fête is celebrating its half century this year in the Fontvieille Chapiteau with fun for all ages.

Over 25 stalls will adorn the grand marquee for this once a year “jumble sale” in Fontvieille on Saturday 7th December, all with an aim to benefit a heavenly host of charitable causes.

Toys, books, antiques, clothes, holiday decorations, shoes, household items, handbags and other items will be there for the taking alongside international stands offering specialities from France, Spain, Greece, Great Britain and of course Monaco.

There is also a tombola with over 20 prizes up for grabs and with tickets going for only €2 a piece, visitors can have a real shot at a win.

Snacks and drinks are served all day, though it is rumoured that the mince pies and cakes disappear by midday, so an early arrival is recommended. 

The kermesse is a cooperative effort of a selection of local Christian churches as a way to raise money for a vast array of charitable causes they help throughout the year and is held under the patronage of Princess Caroline of Hanover.

Donations for the event are being accepted all day on both Thursday 5th December and Friday 6th December at the Chapiteau. Entry is free and doors are open from 10am until 6pm on Saturday.

Join in the fun, find a few gifts and feel good about helping those in need!
