Tasting vendors include any person/business preparing dishes, including food trucks. Because this is a long festival (11am-7pm) in order to ensure freshness of ingredients and give as many restaurants and eateries the opportunity to participate, we are breaking up the day into 2 time blocks (11am-3pm & 3pm-7pm) for tastings. We prefer local ingredients if possible, vegan options are appreciated, and if you would like, we can help pair you with a local beverage. We request that you confirm your tasting dish(es) 7 days prior to the fest.
Each tasting vendor is required to provide at least one tasting-size dish worth 1-3 dollars throughout their stay.
Vendors handle their own cash transactions and keep all profits.
Cost is $250 per time slot for tasting vendors wanting tent space, which includes two six foot tables, prep space, source of water, ice and/or cold storage space, space under our Tasting Tents and a crowd of 30,000.
Food trucks staying for the entire day get a space for their vehicle, ice and/or cold storage and a crowd of 30,000 people coming through the fest. Cost is $350. Space is very limited, and we reserve the right to reject any truck.
