Food Vendor Application Application Details

The general food vendor fee is $250. Vendors must supply their own tent or trailer. The event provides two tables and two chairs per food vendor. You are required to provide the following: paper towels, hand soap, dish soap, unscented sanitizer and sanitizer test strips.

Some food vendors will be located in the main food tent (for an additional $50 fee), near Walnut St. & Hampton Ave., and some food vendors will be assigned to a 10x10 space on the street. Festival Management determines booth location. If you use propane to cook, the fire department requires you to be in an individual 10 x 10 tent on the street. Approved food vendors are required to be present both days of the festival, during festival hours.

No hot or cold drink concessions may be sold by any of the food vendors at any time during the festival without prior permission from the DSA. Failure to comply with this guideline will result in forfeiture of concession space at future Cider Days festivals.

**Please note that food vendors must purchase a $45 Temporary Food Establishment permit from the Springfield-Greene County Health Dept. This is an additional fee paid directly to the Springfield-Greene County Health Department.**
