Please call if you have any questions. All vendors must meet all the Health Dept. standards and pass any necessary inspections.  Please note that a booth rental includes Park Fees, Fire Inspection, Toilets, wood flooring (except for trucks),  and name listing on the website.  Food vendors can only be considered for a "Pre-Packaged Booth" if you are selling straight from a pre-sealed package or container in which there is no cutting, other preparation, etc.  Food vendor applications must be received six weeks ahead of the festival in order to secure time to get the required health department permit and meet other requirements. It is the responsibility of the Food Exhibitor to make sure they fill out the Health Department Form correctly are fulfill all the requirements required by the Health Department concerning the filing for the Health Permit.
  • Food Booths and Trucks Only We have a Fast Pass system for attendees who donate larger amounts to the festival. Your participation in the Fast Pass program is mandatory. You will receive more information on the Fast Pass system. The simple version is you offer a special line where Fast Pass Holders can go to the front and order ahead of other people in line.
