Food Vendor Application

The Hyattsville CDC invites Food Vendor Applications for the Downtown Hyattsville Arts Festival on Saturday, September 23rd, 2023. Food trucks, food tent vendors and local restaurants are invited to apply to this juried event.

All applicants must be registered to serve food in Prince George’s County, MD. And, vendors may serve foods made on-or-offsite, individually wrapped/plated or sold from containers. But, please note, food vendors are NOT allowed to sell and/or distribute any alcoholic beverages, as the Festival will again feature Maryland craft breweries. Please inform the festival staff of your next event in order that they may taste-test items from your menu and view your tent in-person.

Applications are due by Friday, August 4th, 2023. If selected, the participation fee of $250 will be due along with requested materials.

The Festival will span 3 city streets, where we expect more than 5,000 attendees over this six—hour event. Also, we expect about ten food trucks, food tent vendors and restaurants, offering a variety of cuisines. Please describe in your application your services and ideal capacity.
