To keep the fest green this year we are not allowing any plastic water bottles this year. If you would like to have water available we can get you in touch with a water box vendor.
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. Food trucks are the exception and will be there throughout the day. 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.
