Food Court Vendor Application
Replenish Ministries Inc. is hosting its 3rd annual event, Replenish Festival July 7th through 9th in Floyd, Virginia. We would like to extend to you the opportunity to participate in this year’s Food Court. Reservations are for a limited number of booths in the Food Court. Filling out an application does not guarantee your spot. All vendors must be pre-approved and will be on a first- come first-served basis. The fees for the booths are noted below.
The available booths measure 20×20. Tents for food vendors are required per health department regulations. You must supply your own tent. If you require more space, you may rent 2 booths. Due to the necessity of making advance arrangements, we are setting a deadline for applications for May 1st 2017. Each application must include a copy of your insurance form verifying current liability coverage. Also if you are a mobile food truck you must supply us with your mobile food license, and proof of insurance. Along with a check made to Replenish Ministries Inc. All food vendors will be selected by the coordinator based on the food needs. Please note: no food vendor will be allowed to sell water or soda. Replenish Festival will be selling water and soda at the Replenish Store.
All Food vendors must be ready for inspection by 1:00pm Friday, July 7th for those vending the entire event. Gates open Friday at 2:00pm. Those vending Saturday ONLY (the 8th), will have inspections coordinated with Travis Bishop. Vendors must commit to all day Saturday from 12:00noon 12pm, unless other arrangements are made with the coordinator. All Food Vendors may leave after the event on Saturday night. We are only asking for one or two breakfast vendors to stay for Sunday morning, to accommodate those camping and the church service.
