Petals & Stars will kick off a new season of Entrepreneur Day 4 Kids popup markets in Beaufort County starting April 15 at Martin Family Park in Bluffton. 

From noon to 3 p.m., children and their parents will be onsite selling slime, cupcakes, jewelry, artwork and a variety of other items. Bluffton Police Department will also be on hand with a static display for public interactions.

This is the second year Petals & Stars has organized the events in Beaufort County, after holding markets on the University of South Carolina Bluffton campus and Hilton Head Island’s Shelter Cove Community Park last year.

Local businesses and organizations are pitching in to support the project by donating coupons, promotional products and other items to the “small” business stars.

The vendor fee is $15 per booth for children 16 and younger.

The event is free and open to the public.

Petals & Stars is a local program with a mission of spreading hope to its neighbors. Its signature initiative, the Kindness Creations Project, invites students to write encouraging messages on small, specialty paper for distribution to animal helpers, veterans, first responders, farmers and other community workers. 

To date, thousands of notes have been shared with targeted groups in Beaufort and surrounding counties. 

The Entrepreneur Day 4 Kids popup market was started in 2022 for children with aspirations of entrepreneurship. In addition to families with “small” business stars setting up booths to sell baked goods, jewelry, artwork, and other fun products, local community helpers present onsite static displays for fun interactions.
