Vendor & Sponsor Application
What permits/licensing is required for my participation?
All food/drink vendors are encouraged to take the Summer Festival Sanitation Certification Class. Please note: There is a minimum 3 week processing time for Summer Festival Sanitation Certificates. If you do not have a valid Summer Festival Sanitation Certificate, you must have an equivalent Food Handler Certificate.
Vendors selling merchandise (apparel, jewelry, etc.) are required to pay a $25 fee to obtain a Pop-Up Retail User Permit. You will need to provide us your Illinois Business Tax Number for this permit.*
*Please note: If you do not have an Illinois Business Tax (IBT) Number, you must contact the Illinois Department of Revenue at 217-785-3707 to apply. Please reference the IDOR website for more information here.
