Urban Fair coming to Ongwediva

Making history and providing opportunities

16 August 2019 |
On 7 September, Ongwediva will play host to the first-of-its-kind Urban Fair.

The event will take place in the Mayor’s Park, which will be transformed into a bustling marketplace.

The event will bring together aspiring and current entrepreneurs for a day of networking, brand building and youth empowerment.

The Urban Fair is the brainchild of Haven Investment CC under the creative direction of Dina Shipushu. The fair aims to elevate small businesses by providing them with a platform to showcase and sell their products and services to hundreds of potential customers, all in one space. The public also has a chance to find and buy unique products that may not be readily available in brick and mortar shops.

According to Shipushu, having entrepreneurs representing different industries in one location also creates a great networking opportunity.

“This is a platform created for individuals and businesses to express and share excellence. We’d like to see young and old coming together and learning from one another. That’s the kind of vibe we are trying to create - one of unity, support and togetherness - because there’s also a social aspect to it,” said Shipushu.

What sets the Urban Fair apart from other expos and fairs is firstly that it is a quarterly event, and is accessible and affordable to small business owners, which is evident in the low participation fee of only N$350 per stall. Although the inaugural event, Urban Fair Volume 1, will be held over one day, the organisers plan on increasing this to three days in future.

“The event is open to all business owners, regardless of what stage their business is at. We are therefore calling on all aspiring entrepreneurs, start-ups and well-established businesses to sign-up and help us to promote youth entrepreneurship in Ongwediva. We’re also making history because this will be the first event of its kind to be held in our town,” Shipushu added.

The event caters for all types of businesses, including food, clothing, cosmetics, arts and crafts, décor services, homemade goods and many more. Whether your business is new or old, large or small, this event is for you.

Entrance to the Urban Fair will cost N$10 and is free for children up to the age of 10 who are accompanied by an adult. The organisers also made provision for entertainment for the little ones, with different activities lined up, including jumping castles, face painting and much more.

The deadline to book a stall is 20 August. Interested parties can contact the organisers at 081 293 8038 or send an email to [email protected]
