Come Out With Pride makes every effort to ensure clean, professional, and diverse food vending and food truck offerings. The selection of vendors is based on a variety of factors including amount of space available, menu presentation and the needs of the festival.
Application Process: Please fill out the attached application as thoroughly as possible and send it in to us. DO NOT send any payments at this time. We will consider your application and notify you if you are selected to participate with us at the festival. Sending an application does not guarantee acceptance. At the point of acceptance, you will have a maximum of 30 days to decide if you will join us at the event. If we don’t hear from you and receive payment within the 30 days, the offer of participation will be cancelled.
Payment: Payment is only due once you have been accepted. We prefer payment by check or money order. A $50 charge will be assessed for returned checks. A separate cleaning deposit check may be required for certain events. Refund Policy: If the withdraw is made 60 days or more prior to the first day of the event, you can receive a 50% refund on your space fee. No refunds will be given within 60 days of the event because they will be committed to the event production.
What we Provide: Included in your festival fee is booth space. Your tent, signs, equipment, tables, chairs, additional power, etc. are your responsibility with rare exceptions. Additional governmental fees such as Health Department fees may apply as well.
Beverage Policy: Vendors are allowed to sell Iced Tea and lemonade. No vendor will be allowed to serve packaged drinks such as soft drinks, energy drinks, sports drinks, or water. No alcoholic beverages may be sold from your booth at any time.
Grease and Trash: All food vendors must provide ground cover inside their booth and cooking area for the absorption of grease. No food vendor will be allowed to open if the ground cover is not in place. No grease or grey water is to be poured onto the ground or down any drains. Anyone found doing this will be asked to leave and will lose your clean up deposit. Additionally, you will be responsible for any and all environmental cleanup costs and subject to prosecution by city or state officials. Trash: Vendors are responsible for collecting and properly bagging trash within your sales location. Our clean-up crew will collect properly bagged trash from outside of your sales location.
Water and Ice: Water, Ice, Grey water tanks, and grease disposal tanks may or may not be available depending on the event you have been accepted to. Please inquire for each event. Please bring appropriate hoses, hose connections, and transport buckets. Ice maybe available for purchase at our festivals.
