FOOD VENDOR APPLICATIONS

Art in the park food vendors

Deadline for Food Vendor applications: Friday, March 29th
Notification of invitation: Friday, April 5th
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 is our 61st annual Art in the Park festival, and we look forward to welcoming tens of thousands of visitors to the park over June 1-2. 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 2019 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.

We have space available at the festival for both food truck and food tent set ups. Food tents are given a 12x12 booth space to accomodate a 10x10 foot tent set up.
