Introducing Petit Marché!

We are excited to announce the first ever Petit Marché to be held at Scène des Jeunes! This is an educational experience for kids ages 6-16 to learn hands-on what it takes to run a business and vend in a festival setting. From applying to the show, making their craft, pricing, setting up their booth, selling to real customers and going home with hard earned money, these little artists will get a quick grasp on what it takes to be a festival vendor! Artists must have permission from a legal parent or guardian to apply.
