The Acton Sioux Falls Children’s Business Fair gives young entrepreneurs ages 6-17 the opportunity to launch their very own business, sell to real customers and make their own money.
Last year's businesses included sweet treats, digital services, little books, handmade designs and accessories, mowing business, garden plants, homemade soaps, lemonade stands and more. It's truly a testament to our youth’s limitless imagination and entrepreneurial drive.
By supporting our Children's Business Fair, you contribute to a valuable lesson in independence, problem-solving, and experiential learning for our young entrepreneurs. This event ignites their passion for innovation and entrepreneurship, equipping them with essential skills for future success.
