Food & Beverages
Thank you for your interest in providing food service at Chain of Parks Art Festival. The festival strives to have a wide variety of wholesome and delicious food with a preference for local food vendors. The festival has partnered with Sustainable Tallahassee to continue Greening the Festival which will require your help as a food vendor to reduce food waste and waste generated from food and beverage containers.
The Greening the Festival initiative requires food vendors to comply with the following:
- Do not use any Styrofoam containers. If you need a provider for non-Styrofoam food and beverage options, we have negotiated a discounted rate from Dade Paper. See application for details.
- Do not use plastic bags when serving food.
- If you have prepared food which is unsold at the end of the day on Saturday or Sunday, please package it so it can be picked up by local non-profits serving the homeless in our community rather than throwing it away.
- Use the recycling bins and compost bins which will be located in the food vendor court for your use and convenience.
We hope you will join us at the festival and in our effort to incorporate environmental considerations to minimize the festival’s negative impact on the environment.
The Festival would not be the success it is without the many hands of volunteers like you who want to support the Arts in our community.
Sign up to volunteer for just a few hours or every day – either way, join the group of dedicated volunteers who often return each year because it’s rewarding and fun!
