Avila Beach Children's Business Fair
COULD A TEN-YEAR-OLD INVENT THE NEXT ÜBER? Find out at the Avila Beach Children's Business Fair, showcasing kids' entrepreneurial genius! On Saturday, October 16th from 10AM to 1PM the 1st annual Avila Beach Children's Business Fair outdoor area will host young entrepreneurs and their booths at the Avila Beach Community Center This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. There are over 37 Booths selling everything from homemade jewelry, to dog and cat toys, model airplanes, hand sewed gift items, potted plants, birdhouses, toys, cookies and more! Kids create a product or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at this one-day marketplace. The children are responsible for the setup, sales, and interacting with customers, and any parent seen selling to the customer or promoting the child's product will result in disqualification from the competition. This event is sponsored by the McKiernan Family and the generous support of our donors and volunteers, who 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 one of the thousands of unsung business owners across this country, these entrepreneurs are the people who make sacrifices to innovate, create jobs, and serve their communities. "Today's youth are tomorrow's business innovators and leaders. The Children's Business Fair gives students the opportunity to spread their entrepreneurial wings and get a head start on promising business careers," said Jeff Sandefer, founder of the Acton School of Business, one of the sponsors of the fair. Awards will be presented in each of the four age groups for "Most Business Potential," "Most Creative Idea," and "Most Impressive Presentation." COME SHOP AND SUPPORT THESE LOCAL YOUTH AND THEIR DREAMS! The event will have FREE popcorn and waters and all entrants will receive a raffle ticket for entry to win a gift basket!
