Chicago Children's Business Fair

Fri, Nov 13, 2020, 10:00 AM – Sun, Nov 15, 2020, 5:00 PM

About this event

the Chicago Children's Business Fair is happening- Virtually!

Hosted by a Chicago private school, Greenfields Academy, this community event has drawn close to 400 in-person shoppers in the past year alone who have supported close to 90 vendors (half of which were non-Greenfields Academy students who joined together with our school for this annual fair!). Student owned businesses brought in close to $8,000 over just a single weekend event!

We have shared a recent video podcast episode (one of many to come with student-interviews!) earlier this week around the Chicago Children's Business Fair to give you a bit more about what it's like for students to experience this!

Because of the COVID pandemic, our school believes that times are difficult for children, especially those who cannot go back in-person. We know that students will truly enjoy this incredible weekend-long virtual event to be able to make a positive impact on their own learning, dive into a passion project of their own they are most interested in, and making a difference for the community! 

Our goal is to reach the maximum amount of students, families, and potential community customers both near and far this year as our event is now a virtual experience! We have an incredible platform to ensure the event is smooth & successful, especially to give this opportunity to so many students dealing with a loss of interest and purpose while learning at-home away from the school environment.
