Acton Children’s Business Fair of Washington, D.C.

A one-day business fair with a mission to inspire children to discover their inner entrepreneur.

Date Change –

Saturday, May 20, 2017 ∙ 10 AM – 1 PM

3400 Connecticut Avenue, Cleveland Park, Washington, D.C.

Join the young entrepreneurial spirit in Washington, DC, Saturday, May 20, 2017*, for the Acton Children’s Business Fair, which inspires children to discover their inner entrepreneur.

The largest entrepreneurship event for children in North America, this morning-long fair gives children the opportunity to showcase their very own businesses.

Children ages 6 to 14 are invited to create a product or service and sell to customers at our morning-long market. Prizes will be given for the best businesses by age and category. Interested in applying to participate? Applications are due by midnight ET on April 16, 2017.  (Tips: First, check out the resources page. Then, read the Application Guidelines and Frequently Asked Questions. Finally, complete the application by the deadline.)

Past businesses have included handmade greeting cards, a pet-sitting service for exotic birds, a photobomb booth, and a lemonade stand that donated a percentage of profits to protect honeybees. The possibilities are limited only to what children can create!
