Food trucks/tents only, no desserts, though food rucks may add dessert items to their menu. Food vendors may sell soft drinks, but only the facility may sell/serve alcohol.
NO JUDGES: All attendees get to vote all weekend. Attendees get free re-entry all weekend and can vote each day.
We HIGHLY recommend having business cards or something with your truck name on it for attendee so they don't forget who they want to vote for.
FOOD VENDOR MEETING at the mermaid tank 8am Friday morning to cover last minute details, Q&A.
To participate, food vendors agree
all servings will be $10 or less.
Don't allow portion control to deter you. It profits more when done right. Customize a menu with multiple quick & easy to prepare items from $5 to $10. This makes lines move fast and encourages people to try more items.
