Island children are busy getting their projects together for the Key Biscayne Children’s Business Fair, which will take place from 1-4 p.m. October 3 at the Village Green.
The Fair aims to motivate young entrepreneurs ages 8 to 16 to pursue their projects and understand the value of their ideas. Children create a product or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at this one-day marketplace.
Organizers say this year’s fair, featuring 50 business projects, promises to be a creative array of kid-led businesses displaying their talents with jewelry, granola, headbands, clothes, games, home-made soda, and much more.
Following Covid-19 protocols, there will be 6-foot distances between the kids’ stands, which will be displayed around the park’s fountain area.
After the fair, the Hermanos de la Calle event allows kids to witness first-hand how their 5% donation contributes to the less fortunate.
This year’s fair also serves as an invitation for schools to host a kid’s marketplace in their buildings, and for communities to host a fair in their area. The Fair’s website provides guidance for setting up a fair, which saves time and energy to other organizers.
