A temporary event is a single community event or celebration that operates for no more than 14 consecutive days. These events include but are not limited to town celebrations, fairs, festivals and farmer's markets.
Event coordinators who wish to have food vendors may be required to obtain an approved license. Certain criteria may exempt this requirement like limiting vendors to 2 or less approved mobile units, or only utilizing cottage food vendors.
Food vendors that do not have an approved mobile unit license or who are not cottage food vendors must obtain a Temporary Food Service License to operate at temporary events.
