KidsFest Business Fair

Shawnee Parks & Recreation is proud to present the KidsFest Business Fair on Saturday, September 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. KidsFest will provide kids ages 6-16 the opportunity to be entrepreneurs -- boosting their confidence, teaching valuable lessons, and giving them an experience they will never forget. Participating youth have developed a brand, created a product or service, and buillt a marketing strategy. These young entrepreneurs are launching their very own startup business for customers at this one-day market place.

Participating vendors will be open to business for the young and the young at heart. After you shop until you drop, youth will enjoy hearing stories of past and present from our local entrepreneurs. They will share their lessons learned and their secrets to success to help you reach your business goals.
