Getting a stall at the Young Entrepreneur Fair
Firstly – congratulations! Most young people dream of making extra pocket money
but you’ve already taken the first step by visiting this page – so well done you.

Selected stallholders will have three glorious hours to sell to a ready-made audience of
festival-goers. We’ll provide trestle tables and be there to make sure everybody has a

TBA, for young people aged 6 – 17.
One session only: 1:00-4:00pm
Set up 30 mins before
Dismantle 15 mins after
$30 per stall – payable on confirmation of booking
- Open to young people 6 to 18 years
- Individuals or teams of 2 can participate
- No trash or treasure (but recycled and re-purposed goods OK)
- This is not a trash and treasure market. You can’t just pack some old stuff in a box and sell it off. You have to make something – or come up with a service you think people will pay for.
- You need to be aged between 6 and 17 years to have a stall at the market.
Selection is based on the strength of your idea, and on getting a great mix of stalls at the market.
The cost is $30 per stall. (This helps cover some of the costs of running the fair.)
This fee must be paid within 3 days of your stall offer to confirm your stall. We’ll provide payment details when we send out offers.
After this date the place will be offered to someone else. We know timing is tight but we have to allow the next person time to prepare their goods.
While your child is participating in the market, a parent or guardian (25 years or older) must remain with the child. All parents must provide a mobile telephone number and sign the terms and conditions when registering. This includes permission for photographs of your children to be used publicly. Registration will be sent with your offers.
For security reasons, a parent or guardian must remain at the stall, during set up, the 3 hours of operation and dismantling.
You can set up 30 minutes before the market begins and will have 15 minutes to dismantle.
Each stall has 1.2 metres of “shop” space. Your young person will need to bring everything they need for the day.
The Fiesta will have an event photographer capturing moments of the day. The application form has a section to provide permission for your young entrepreneur’s image to be used by YEP for promotion of next year’s event.
