Cleaning fee deposit (refundable)

All vendors must send a separate check in the amount of $100 for clean-up deposit for each vending area.

If your vending area has no clean-up, vehicle or set-up/take-down issues, the Event Producers will shred the deposit check by the end of July. Those vendors who have clean-up, vehicle or set-up/take-down issues will forfeit their cleaning deposit and may be subject to additional costs if needed and will not be asked back to the event.

Each unit is responsible for the clean-up of their assigned area and adjacent property within 20 feet, every direction, before departing. Vendors may overlap each other in clean up. No grease, cooking water or other food-processing residue may be deposited on or adjacent to Noble Sports Park or its sewers.


Vendors will be inspected by the City of Brooklyn Park before opening. You must be ready for a health and fire inspection on Friday at 2:30 p.m.

Anyone not in compliance will be required to fix the situation or be removed from the event. Additional fees may be charged.


Vendors must provide a copy of their general liability insurance naming the following business as an additional insured:

City of Brooklyn Park
5200 85th Ave N
Brooklyn Park, MN 55443

The amount should be no less than $500,000 per incident. Name of insured on certificate of insurance must match the company name listed on your application. NO EXCEPTIONS.


Any required sales tax collections and remittances are the sole responsibility of the vendors.


Applications must be received by April 1, 5:00 p.m.

Applications received after this date may not be processed. Your first notification of acceptance will be the deposit of your payment. Following that, you will receive a confirmation via email.

Acceptance of vendor applications is based upon the following:

  1. Receiving your application
  2. Full vending fees
  3. $100 refundable clean up deposit (separate check)
  4. Certificate of insurance
  5. City of Brooklyn Park Food License

We will send a rejection email to those not accepted. We will not allow non-approved vendors on site.

Acceptance as a vendor does not imply our endorsement or affiliation with the organization and/or individual. The views expressed by vendors are not necessarily those of the festival, Event Producers, its community partners or sponsors.


You may cancel your application in writing at any time up to April 1. Event Producers will reimburse you 50 percent of your Vendor Fee at that time. We are unable to offer any refunds after May 15. We will not issue any refunds if the event is canceled due to dangerous or severe weather conditions or any other acts of God.

Vendor spaces are rented per vending unit. Vendor spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A vendor requiring more than a single space can purchase an additional space if accepted by the Event Producers.

The Event Producers reserve the right to determine and edit the number of businesses or organizations that exhibit or vend the same or similar products and/or services at the festival. Event Producers will place vendors according to the best needs of the event. Vendors are not guaranteed the same spot every year.

Vendors are not allowed to share or sublet booth space(s) to or with another business or organization. Vendor spaces are approved for one business only and must match the application submitted. Shared or sublet vendors will be removed from the event, no refund will be given to the applicant, and an additional $500 fee will be assessed.
