Observe the opportunity for children to launch their very own startup business! Deadline to apply for a booth: September 1st, 5pm.
Kids develop a brand, create a product or service, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at our one-day marketplace. **At this time, we cannot accept applications for food or foodstuff that will trigger a health department approval. This includes: cupcakes, pre-packaged goods, home made candy or anything consumable. sorry, we just don't have the bandwidth for the extra process in our first year!
We will host approximately 35 booths for children vendors ages 8-18 years old at the upcoming Children's Business Fair on Saturday, September 24th, from 11:00pm – 4:00 pm (this is a placeholder date only, to be confirmed!). We are charging a $20 booth fee which will cover the cost of our DJ and entertainment for the day. Children Vendors must start to set up at 10am and start to take down at 4pm. All children vendors should have an adult accompanying them for the duration of the event and in addition, there will be on-site volunteers who can help you.
This event is sponsored by The Wenham Museum, Local HW, and our national partner, Acton Academy, the Acton School of Business. We all believe that principled entrepreneurs are heroes and role models for the next generation.
Whether an entrepreneur is famous like Elon Musk or Oprah Winfrey 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.
Our first Children's Business Fair took place in 2021 with 25 vendors and it was wildly successful. We can't wait to see what happens this year. Also, stay tuned, but we might be allowing foodstuffs to be sold, if the Health department approval process isn't too difficult for us.
