The sections which contract with food vendors are Fourth Street, St. James Court, Third Street and The West End Baptist Church. If not already at capacity (see indicator below), you may correspond via email or phone only with the individual section regarding space availability. Contracts are negotiated between the vendor and individual section.
We are looking for interesting, unique, gourmet-inspired food on Fourth Street.We are not considering vendors who sell the same, or very similar product as already sold elsewhere in the show, nor are we looking for “typical” fair food. Although there are too many to list individually, the following is a general idea of what we are NOT looking for this year:
NON-CONSIDERED FOOD TYPES:
- KettleKorn/Popcorn/Roasted Nuts – Snacks in General
- FroYo/Ice cream/Gelato/Shaved Ice- Cold Treats
- Funnel Cakes/Corn Dogs/Hot Dogs/Brats/Roasted corn/ Blooming Onions/Curly Fries, etc. Typical Fair or Carnival Type Food
- Coffees and Teas- Beverage in General
- Specialty Foods Already Represented – Gyros/Mediterranean, Crab Cakes, Asian Noodles, Dessert Only
Please note all food vendors on Fourth must operate in approximately a 10′ x 10′ space with little water and minimal electricity. Anything bigger, like food trucks or trailers, won’t fit. Please read through the entire application to determine whether or not you can adhere to all policies before applying. Your application must be complete to be considered. Feel free to email your application including all attachments and/or images.
The Fourth Street Food Vendor application can be found here. Applications Accepted January-August. No inquiries after September 1. Spaces are not always available.
We apologize that we are not able to return calls from food vendors unless being considered for inclusion, due to high number of calls received. Please feel free to email questions to: email@example.com
