Lemonade Stand Day
Sunday, August 29th, 2021
We invite you to participate Lemonade Stand Day by hosting a lemony event in your community and together we will support the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation in the renovation of the Family Room at the hospital. Simply Supper and the Sponsors of Lemonade Stand Day will provide you with a kit which includes items to get your stand started – all you need is a little love, some smiles and a lot of fun!
To participate this year, register your stand starting June 18, 2021. Registration is required to be an official participant of the event and to guarantee a Lemonade Stand Day kit for your group.
What We Stand For
The Simply Supper Lemonade Stand Day is a fun program that gives kids the opportunity to run a business, learn about entrepreneurship, philanthropy, marketing and customer service at a young age. Over the last seven years, $900,000 has been raised and over 4,000 kids have participated in the annual event!
Simply Supper and the sponsors of Lemonade Stand Day provide all lemonade ingredients, cups, signage, t-shirts and training for kids to run their stands.
In return, the Junior Lemon Squeezers will give back all proceeds to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation. No child comes to the Stollery alone. When a kid gets sick or hurt, parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends all come together to help. Our junior lemon squeezers are raising funds to help renovate an important space at the Stollery — the Family Room. It’s a safe place for patient families to be together, or alone, to reflect, to laugh and cry, and to rest and re-energize. The Family Room has info on Stollery care teams, medical procedures and Hospital resources, plus games, reading materials and Internet access. The new space will include a dining area, updated technology and improved wheelchair access.
This event is planned and managed by Simply Supper and a volunteer committee with the proceeds of this event being donated to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Frequently Asked Questions
In light of Covid-19, will Lemonade Stand Day be happening?
Yes! We have worked hard to provide you the tools you need to be safe this year and we encourage you to host a lemonade stand that works for your family.
Do I have to host a traditional lemonade stand?
We encourage you to host a stand that make you feel the safest. You can host a drive-thru stand, a virtual stand, an invite only stand or maybe you want to do deliveries and you can bring your friends and family “Lemon Drops” thru contactless delivery.
What is a virtual stand?
This would be a stand via the internet only. You would have no physical visitors to your stand and would not be selling lemonade in person. You can be as creative as you like with this…maybe sell artwork that you will mail, offering to do 7 days of lemony challenges or offering lemon themed cooking demos.
Does our stand have to be on the Lemonade Stand Day map?
No, when registering you can select to not be on the map.
