The Grande Braderie, the annual “garage sale” organised by UCAM, the Monaco Union of Traders and Artisans, continues today and Sunday at the Chapiteau in Fontvieille. The 20th edition includes more than two-dozen big name brands offering slashed prices of up to 70 percent.
The perfect way to spend a rainy day – the event is free and runs from 10 am to 7:30 pm – sort through stands and racks full of designer bargains, from clothing for women, men and children to shoes, and from home deco to sporting goods. Stock up on Christmas toys for kids and dogs.
UCAM supports Monegasque charities, and several stands are making a fundraising appeal. At the back of the jumbo tent, there’s a sit down café to reenergise.
To celebrate its 20th birthday, take part in the raffle by filling out a form at the entrance, on the left (opposite the crêpe stand) and win prizes from various Monaco institutions: dinner at the Café de Paris; Sunday Jazz Brunch at Saphir24; lunch at the Novotel Monte Carlo; tickets for the International Monte-Carlo Circus Festival; museum passes (Oceanographic Museum, NMNN), entry to future summer exhibitions at Grimaldi Forum … and other “surprises”.
Preferential parking €3 for 3 hours at Fontvieille car park. Pick up validated tickets at the Chapiteau entrance.
