Observe the opportunity for children to launch their very own startup business!
Kids develop a brand, create a product or service, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at our one-day marketplace.

There will be prizes for the different age groups. We will have a $20 entry fee per business. Once you apply above, you will receive more information of dates for a pre-launch. Giving the kids a chance to get to know one another and learn more about the set up, prizes, rules, and location of the fair. We encourage all participants to join the pre-launch and have some fun.
There will be a drawing there for prizes as well. Age Categories: 6-7, 8-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-17 All entries will automatically be entered in the business competition, and booths will be judged on most origianl business idea, heighest business potential, and best presentation/creativity.
