* Food Vendors* You will be required to fill out and submit a Gaston County Temporary Food Establishment Permit (this does not mean you will pay an inspection fee). This includes vendors that require inspections as well as vendors that do not require inspections. ALL FOOD VENDORS MUST COMPLETE THIS FORM. DO NOT MAIL THIS FORM TO THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT. You will be notified by festival staff with more information and how to submit further paperwork.
ALL vendors must supply their own tent, tables, chairs and any other items needed at your booth. Power is NOT available. If you require power and need to bring a generator please let us know in your application. Don't want to bother with a generator for lighting? What are your other options for lighting?? Click HERE for ideas. Vendors are not permitted to pack up and leave before closing times. Vendors are allowed to leave tents and tables overnight but we DO NOT recommend leaving anything of value. Detailed rules and regulations will be emailed once vendors are approved.
