The second annual Children’s Business Fair featured over 20 young entrepreneurs spanning the ages of 6-year-olds to teenagers. 

The fair was held on June 29 at the Palm Coast Community Center where the children were responsible for all parts of their business displays, from the setup to sales with customers. The businesses displayed hand-made jewelry, baked goods, live plants and bulbs, car detailing services, hand-made paracord bracelets, original artwork and other amazing products for purchase, a Culinary Wellness press release said.

“We continue to support our young entrepreneurs in this community and organizing this event provides them that opportunity," said Maria Delgado, the founder of Culinary Wellness. "We’re so proud of each and every kid vendor that participated in this one-day marketplace and thankful to the community that came out to support them today.”

The Children’s Business Fair was available to children within Palm Coast and the surrounding areas and was sponsored by the non-profit Remembering Heroes, the press release said.

Six participants also received award certificates with gift cards for one of three categories: "Most Business Potential," "Most Original Idea" and "Best Presentation at the Children's Business Fair." All were treated to a surprise pizza lunch with snack boxes and treats, provided by Palm Coast realtor Donna Dorst and businesses Charcuterie Dreams and Leilani’s Sweetery, the press release said.
