2013 Food Vendors Hours:
Please be aware the deadline, yet to be determined, for the Celebration Food Application Form and the CCHD Permit Form is will be set for early March, 2013.
Celebration is now accepting food vendor applications for Celebration 2013.
Only ten primary food vendors will be selected so space is limited! Organizers are seeking vendors who offer high quality/delicious food options. Special priority will be given to those vendors who specialize in ethnic and/or unique food cuisines. The goal is to offer festival visitors more then the traditional fair-food offerings.
While it is difficult to provide exclusive selling rights to a single vendor offering standard festival fare such as corn dogs and French fries, the festival will not place like-vendors side-by-side and have no more then two vendors offering like products. The objective is to have ten completely different food vendors.
The application fee is $300 along with a five-percent of gross sales. The $300 entry fee is required at the time the application form is submitted. The additional five percent will be payable at the conclusion of each day of the festival.
If a food booth is classified as a support vendor which means they specialize in selling a single product such as fudge, kettle corn, roasted almonds, etc, the booth fee is $175 along with a five-percent of gross sales. Support booths will be located near the arts fair area and not in the primary food vendor area.
Below, you will find a Festival Concessions Application Form, Terms & Conditions, along with the application for a Coles County Health Department Temporary Food Permit. Celebration will absorb the cost of the applying vendor's Health Department application fee providing an application is submitted by the deadline. Please be aware the deadline for the Celebration Food Application Form and the CCHD Permit Form will be in early March 2013.
