Apply to the fair
Ready to have the experience of a lifetime?
Kids! Create a product or service, design your booth, set your pricing, and then sell to real customers at this one-day public fair.
This is an opportunity for young minds to innovate and become entrepreneurs. Prior to the fair, children think of a business idea and then prepare their products or service. The day of the fair, these young entrepreneurs decorate their booth and get to experience the thrill of selling their products or service to the public.
We welcome the general public to come see these entrepreneurs in action 10am-Noon Saturday May 11, 2019. This fair will be held in downtown Brighton in the parking lot of The State Bank (across from the farmer's market). Booths are FREE and open to all children in grades K-8th!
Each business will be given a 4' section of table. Everything else is up to the young entrepreneurs.
My 2 children want to create separate businesses, how do I register them for separate tables?
Fill out this form with both their names and ages, then send me an email to let me know they are working separately, firstname.lastname@example.org.
My 2 children want work on the same business, can I reserve 2 tables for them?
Each table should be a separate business with separate children in charge. Up to 3 children can work together at the same table. If 2 or 3 children are working together on the same business, please only fill out the registration form once. Please do not reserve 2 tables for one business idea. My 2 children are selling separate items, can their tables be assigned next to each other?
We do not assign tables, it is first come first serve. Check-in starts at 9am (the selling starts at 10am).
Can my child make multiple types of items to sell?
Of course! It's their business and one of the many business decisions for your young entrepreneur to make.
Can I drop off my child and then leave?
We are not staffed to supervise individual children and parents are encouraged to stick around. To provide the full entrepreneurial experience, try to remain as hands off as possible, letting the kids take charge. Use the free time to check out the other booths!
My child is registered for a table, what time should we arrive to start setting up?
Check-in for the young entrepreneurs starts at 9am. They have until 10am to prepare their table with their items/decorations. 10am-noon is when they sell to the public.
What are the tables like?
I rent 8-foot banquet tables. Each business gets half (4') of the table.
Will electricity be available?
Unfortunately, electricity is not able to be provided.
