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 permitted to sell BBQ items of any kind
~  Priority will be given to prior vendors, esp. those with us since our first event
~  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 April 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 time.
