My brother's primary school fête is coming up. Not sure if you have school fêtes in the US - basically (at this school, at least) the whole school comes together in mid-June (300 students aged 3-11, plus parents and sometimes siblings) in the large playing field after school for food and activities. Last year they hired about 1/2 dozen huge inflatables, two mobile food trucks provided the food, there were a range of games (raffles, coconut shy etc) and mums with small home businesses sold their wares in the school hall (handmade, gift type goods). They also had young performers come in from dance schools around town. Local estate agents usually sponsor the fair and the local printing company prints their flyers/posters in exchange for ad space. The school is just beginning to plan today, and I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I could potentially make some money out of the event. Ideas so far: 1. Sell advertising spots on printed beer koozies to local businesses, hand them out for free at the fête (thanks richestmaninbabylon) 2. Sell "online portfolio" websites to the performers at the event - only issue is, not sure if the parents of the performers will actually be there. 3. Offer some sort of game/service. Can't think of anything I could do cheaply enough. They're already lining up face painters, caterers and inflatable companies. 4. Design their posters & flyers in exchange for ad space - however, not sure what I would advertise. I'd rather not be promoting CPC offers or anything like that. 5. Sell something on one of the stalls, some sort of cheap and easy craft that kids would beg their parents for. I'm not 100% sold on any of these ideas. Does anyone have any suggestions, or ways to enhance the ideas I already have? Thanks!
