Guidelines for ALL Booths: • Booth space is on the taxiway of the airport so metal stakes cannot be used to anchor any booth or attachments. • Bring weights for any pop-ups, in case it is windy the day of the event. • The size of the booth is approximately 12’ X 12’. Please discuss any size concerns with event staff when signing up for your booth. • Even staff will assign booth space the morning of the event, on a first-come, first-served basis. Location of booth within the event cannot be guaranteed. • ALL booths must be set up by 8:30am. Gates open to vendors at 7am. • Please list your main items for sale in the “Items Selling” line on the form. If you would like to sell more than one item, please list the main items. • Staff will attempt to eliminate duplication of your primary item for sale (for food only type of food will be considered) but we cannot guarantee similar items will not be sold. • NO electricity is available on site. Vendors must supply their own electricity. Food Booths- Additional Guidelines: • Food booths vendors who do not already have an annual Merced County Health Permit must contact Merced County Public Health for a temporary permit. Contact the County with ANY questions regarding the permit, including whether booths are in the “high risk” or “low risk” category. • Appropriate fees are NOT included in the booth fee and vendors need to provide the City a separate check for those fees. The check needs to be in the name of Merced County but provided to the City along with the Community Food Event Vendor Application. NOTE: County fees are subject to change at any time but the current amounts (July 2019) are $34 for low risk booths and $98 for high. • Contact Merced County at (209) 381-1100 or go online to www.co.merced.ca.us.
