A day for Junior Entrepreneurs coming soon!



Calling all kid entrepreneurs!! The 1st annual Boro Kid-Con is an event like non other; geared towards young entrepreneurs and all kids alike, this event will give attendees a hands-on experience full of fun for all ages. This free event will be taking place on Saturday June 26th from 10am-3pm at the Lane Agri-Park in Murfreesboro TN.

At Boro Kid-Con you can expect to see interactive booths, optional crafts with a focus on STEAM, vendors with goods for sale as well as the Junior Entrepreneurs looking to showcase their talents. Collectors of fidgets, slime, Lego People, and Pokemon will be thrilled to visit the “Swapping Stations” where collectors can come together and trade their commodities with other enthusiasts.

Jennifer Lowe and Stephanie Mastin, the creators of this event, are two moms who have a vision for kids to explore their interests while having fun. “It all started with my two kids who obsessed with fidgets and slime. They love getting with their friends and making and trading these items. That’s where the idea started,” said Jennifer Lowe. “My kids love making money and coming up with ways to sell their creations. I just knew that there would be other kids with the same passions and interests. We hope this event will give kids the place to display their talents and be their own boss for the day.”

Jamie Bohanon, the mother of Irie Bohanon, a junior entrepreneur with “Everything Irie” says, “What a great opportunity for kids to work alongside one another while having fun and gaining a sense of accomplishment! This event will build their self-confidence, allow personal growth, and enhance their social skills. A wonderful day of community with kids supporting kids.” Boro Kid-Con is currently accepting applications for junior vendors as well as businesses with goods or services aimed towards school age kids. Early bird registration ends June 1st. Applications can be found on their website. www.borokidcon.com
