Set-up is Saturday from 9:30 to 11:15 a.m. Cars will be allowed onto the field to offload and will be directed to a reserved parking area. Break-down of food trucks will take place Sunday after 5 p.m.
The fee is $150 per truck. Space is limited to 10 trucks. RiverFest is committed to ensuring that there are not similar vendors or food trucks selling the same products. Vendors are to sell only items approved by Riverfest and all decisions of Riverfest are final and binding. Participants may not sell alcoholic beverages of any kind during the event. It is strongly recommended that you submit your application early, as an application does not guarantee a spot in this year’s Festival. We will provide a waiting list if more spaces become available.
Please note: All food trucks and vendors must be able to operate independently of any provided resources including water, electricity, refrigeration and any materials. Vendors are responsible for all set-up and clean-up of their booth space and their immediate area surrounding such space. Vendors must maintain assigned area in a neat, clean condition at all times. All trash must be bagged and disposed of in dumpster provided and you must “broom sweep” your area in a timely manner and at the end of the day. No coals, ashes, grease or food wastes of any kind may be disposed of on any areas of festival grounds, parking lot, dumpsters, etc. If you will be using propane, the Fire Marshall will perform inspections the morning of the event.
All food vendors are required to receive a permit from the New Milford Health Department prior to the event in order to participate. A Temporary Food Service Establishment Application must be submitted directly to the Health Department at 10 Main Street, New Milford, CT. Call (860) 355-6035 with any Health Department related questions.
