About STEAM Power
The mission of STEAM Power Indoor Play Center is “for children to reach for the stars in a way that inspires their curiosity, builds self-esteem, creates an imagination of excitement, and explores all the great wonders of the world. STEAM Power offers Explore Time (open play), field trips, birthday parties (private and non-private), special events, classes of all sorts (crafts, steam, all in one etc.), retail and coming soon a cafe! The are focused on providing children with engaging and meaningful experiences so, “We decided what better way than through a kids vendor event.”
Currently, kid vendors have committed to sell items such as artwork, jewelry, keychains, and crocheted items. Treats including cotton candy, lemonade, hot dogs, and pasta salad will also be available for purchase.
Looking for Local Business Sponsors
In addition, they are looking for local businesses to sponsor the event. Businesses can become sponsors by paying a small fee which covers the costs of swag bags that will hold business cards, brochures, or samples and are given out at the event. $30 covers placement in 100 swag bags. Interested businesses can contact LeeAnna and Christine for more information and register on the event website.
Kid Vendors and Public Encouraged to Attend
There is no admission for the public to come in and shop around at this event and anyone interested is encouraged to do so. This is the first of what Steam Power founders hope to become an annual vendor event.
