Come and show your support for the 4th annual Lake Charles Acton Children’s Business Fair, presented by Peppermint Sage Dental Wellness. This year's event is a showcase of the entrepreneurial genius of 60+ kids! It all will take place at the Burton Coliseum Complex (7001 Gulf Hwy) on Saturday, December 9, 2023, from 10 am - 2 pm.


Seeing is believing at the Action Children's Business Fair! The long and short answers are both, YES. Come see the talent that these kids possess! The fair is FREE and open to the public. Much like last year's fair, it's the perfect time of year to shop as handmade, one-of-a-kind gifts and goodies created by kids make for special stocking stuffers.

Last year 700 shoppers turned out to shop and this year, these amazing children are hoping to break that record on Saturday. So, please come out and show your support and shop till you drop! A lot of time and effort went into this one-day marketplace. The kids had to create a product or a service, develop their brand, and then build a marketing strategy before they could open for customers.

The fantastic thing about the Action Children's Business Fair is that this is all being done by kids! By the way, this is also a competition. At the end of the day, badges and awards will be given to the young entrepreneurs who exhibit mastery of business in categories such as ownership, presentation, grit, problem-solving, customer engagement, creativity, and innovation.


Both adult sponsors and kids are available for interviews on camera or off. For more info about the fair, please visit the Dream Create and Inspire website. Special thanks to the Action Children's Business Fair sponsors:
