Are you, or is someone in your troop a “Mompreneur”? 

GSOSW has a few booth spaces left at GirlFest and we want to invite any of our members with businesses who might be interested in promoting their product at Girlfest to contact us for more information. 

We do ask that you provide a hands-on activity for girls at your booth, which we are happy to help you develop if needed. We have a reduced fee for our moms and it’s great exposure for your product to lots of girls and their parents. Some limitations do apply and we will ensure that there is only one of each vendor on site. For all the details, contact Minda at

We have some potential money earning opportunities at GirlFest for troops with Cadettes - Ambassadors at GirlFest! 

We have a few spaces left at Girl Fest for entrepreneurial troops to do money earning activities. If your troop wants to host a booth like face painting, body art, jewelry creation, photo booth, etc, or, want to do a booth but need some ideas, we would love to hear from you. Contact Jennifer Akins at All money earning rules apply.
