Lemonade Day 2021

Saturday, June 19, 2021 (All day)

Lemonade Day is back for another wonderful year!

Registration is Now Open!  Sign Up Now!

What is Lemonade Day?

Lemonade Day is a free, fun learning program that teaches youth how to start, own, and operate their own business…. a lemonade stand.  Along the way, kids acquire skills in goal setting, problem solving, and gain self-esteem critical for future success, all while having FUN!

Who can participate?
Youth of all ages, from Kindergarten through High School, can register to participate in Lemonade Day.

When is it?
Lemonade Day Northern Alberta is on June 19, 2021.  Registration opens on March 1, 2021 and will close June 1, 2021.

How Does Lemonade Day Work?
Once a child has registered for Lemonade Day, they will then pick a location to attend Lemonade University.  

At University, each child receives a backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook where they learn the lessons of Lemonade Day. Our facilitator will guide them through the workbook where they will learn skills like creating budgets, setting profit-making goals, serving customers, repaying investors, and giving back to the community.

After attending Lemmy U, kids are eligible to enter their area’s “Best Tasting Lemonade Contest” if they choose.

On June 19, 2021, all participants will partner with local businesses to set up their Lemonade Stands in their towns and try their hand at running their own business. On that day, they can also enter in their area's “Best Lemonade Stand Contest” as well as the “Best Entrepreneur Contest”.

Kids who participate in Lemonade Day keep all the profit their stands make, but the program encourages them to save some, spend some, and share some.

Once Lemonade Day is over, kids can then enter their business results on the Lemonade Day Northern Alberta website and they will be entered to WIN a New Bike.

NOTE:  Our team will be monitoring the Covid19 situation and following guidance and guidelines implemented by Canada Public Health and Alberta Health. We will make adjustments to the program as required to deliver it safely. The safety of our kids, parents, staff and communities is our top priority.
