The Ateneo Junior Marketing Association, popularly known as AJMA, will celebrate their 25th year this year. On their silver anniversary, the organization aims to uphold their tradition of excellence by constantly striving to deliver innovative and groundbreaking events within and outside of the Ateneo de Manila University.
Last year, AJMA launched its latest project, The Big Red Bazaar: INSTAGRABS. The project aimed to encourage both aspiring and established entrepreneurs in managing projects in real-world situations and it was envisioned as a means to satisfy the hunger of Christmas shoppers.
Following its success last December, AJMA came back with the latest installment of The Big Red Bazaar series, The Weekenders Bazaar, last September 12-13, 2015 at the UP Town Center in Quezon City. The Weekenders Bazaar featured a collection of local eats, artisanal beverages, chic apparel, and quality arts and crafts creations from various merchants. Check out the merchants and the bazaar goes who chose to enliven their weekend at The Weekenders Bazaar!
There were intricately made framed paper cuts from Papel de Pinay.
The cacti from The Greenhouse Project captivated the bazaar goers!
AJMA’s very own Lorenzo Arceo closed the last hour of the bazaar with his rendition of the hit song “Collide.”
The Weekenders Bazaar became possible through the collaborative efforts of the Ateneo Junior Marketing Association, together with their host: UP Town Center, Co-Presenters: Unilever, Wingman, and Zalora, and Media Sponsors: Magic 89.9, Chalk, Candy, Inquirer.Net, ClickTheCity.com, and WhenInManila.Com.
Though The Weekenders Bazaar will be signing off for now, there isn’t anything to worry about. The shopping craze does not end here. The Big Red Bazaar will be back with its next installment, a holiday bazaar, in December 2015.
