Come join us for the Children's Business Fair in Greer, South Carolina! The CBF is an opportunity for children to launch their very own startup business or expand their already established business.
Kids develop a brand, create a product or service, build a marketing strategy, and then welcome customers at our one-day marketplace on Saturday, October 22nd from 10a.m. to 1p.m. From there, the sky is the limit for these young entrepreneurs
Applications (ages 5-17) will be accepted now through OCTOBER 1st, or until spaces are filled. To cover costs for the event, there is a NON-REFUNDABLE BOOTH REGISTRATION FEE of $10.
Once you submit your booth application, you will be notified of the status of your application within seven days. Approved applicants will secure their spot at the fair by submitting the booth fee. SLOTS ARE NOT SECURED UNTIL PAYMENT IS MADE.
Each business will be given a 10 x 10 booth space. EACH BUSINESS MUST PROVIDE EVERYTHING NEEDED: DISPLAY TABLE, CANOPY/TENT, CHAIRS, ETC.
Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate businesses requiring electricity.
Please use the form in the contact tab to reach out to us with any questions!
Customers, this will be a cash only event, so please plan accordingly.
This event is sponsored by Acton Academy, the Acton School of Business, and the generous support of our donors and volunteers. We all believe that principled entrepreneurs are heroes and role models for the next generation. Whether an entrepreneur is famous or they are one of the thousands of unsung business owners across this country, these are the people who make sacrifices to innovate, create jobs and serve their communities.
