Commercial Food Vendors
We look forward to providing a variety of delicious BBQ and other food items for many hungry event attendees (estimated at 15,000+ in 2017), and welcome those interested in participating. Please note the following before applying as a Commercial Food Vendor:
~ Only KCBS BBQ Teams (competing with 4 meats) will be allowed to sell BBQ items of any kind
~ First option will be given to prior vendors, esp. those with us since our first event as they took
a risk vending at a brand new event with no prior attendance / sales records
~ We will do our best to avoid duplicate items to provide a better variety to attendees
~ Applications, with all applicable fees and all required documents must be received no later than May 1, 2018 for consideration.
~ Health Permit fees and application will be submitted (by us) to the local Health Dept. for
review. The health inspector will visit your site prior to opening and issue a permit at that
