Frequently Asked Questions

What is provided?

I'll provide a 4' folding table (without a table cloth or chairs). Everything else is up to they young entrepreneurs.

My 2 children want to create separate businesses, how do I register them for separate tables?

Simply fill out the registration form twice, using a different child's name each time.

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 4 foot by 30 inch folding tables for this event.

I have another question, how can I contact you?
