Art in the park food vendors

Deadline for Food Vendor applications: Open
Event fees: $600 + city health department permit fees ($30)

Thank you for considering Art in the Park as a venue for your food service. This will be the 60th year for Art in the Park and we estimate crowds to be around 10-12,000 depending on the weather. We only have limited space for food vendors due to the limited access to power in the park. Vendor fees are $600 for the weekend plus the temporary license fee payable to the City of Columbia upon inspection prior to the festival.

To keep the food offering varied and fresh at Art in the Park, priority will be given to the following vendors at the 2018 festival:

  • Local (Columbia-based) food retailers
  • Diversity of food
  • Healthy food options
  • Vendors that can vend from a tent set-up in compliance with Columbia public health department guidelines.

If you would like to apply, please download and complete the application form and the application letter, and mail with a check and photograph of your set-up by March 23, 2018, to:

Columbia Art League
207 South Ninth Street
Columbia, MO 65201-4817

Applications will be reviewed and invitations confirmed by April 13, 2018.
