Food and Beverage Menu Items:
The Frendly Gathering prides itself on offering a diverse food selection for attendees. We encourage applicants to be creative with their menu items and to include vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and raw offerings for our Frends. Vendors are allowed to sell non-alcoholic homemade drinks (upon Frendly approval), however, we do not allow the sale of plastic bottles of any kind. All food and beverage choices are subject to festival approval. No sale of alcohol or illegal substances is permitted.
Upon acceptance into the festival vendors will be responsible for submitting the following:
- List of items being sold along with pricing
- List of all staff names
- Business / Merchant License
- Health Department Permit (if applicable)
- Certificate of Insurance (available for purchase via Frendly Gathering for a charge)
Those vendors accepted to The Frendly Gathering 2016 will receive an outline of the necessary paperwork with your acceptance letter. Participation in 2015 does not guarantee a spot in the 2016 Frendly Gathering.
Each vendor will receive 2 festival credentials (per 10x10) for the weekend. Vendors will also be allowed to purchase up to 3 more credentials for $75 each.
