Temporary Food Events
Temporary food stands are food establishments that operate for a period of no more than 14 consecutive days in conjunction with a single event or celebration. Food stands that set-up for fairs and festivals may receive educational materials and/or inspections through their local health agencies. Prior to setting-up at an event or providing foods for sale, the vendor should consult with their local health agency about the requirements that may need to be met to prepare, serve or sell that food at a temporary event. There is a brochure that provides general guidance about what is required for temporary food vendors.
