Food Vendor Terms and Agreements

The Friends of Historic Centreville Incorporated, organizer of Centreville Day 2016, and the VENDOR agree that an application for a space will not be complete until full payment is received by the Friends of Historic Centreville (FHC) and return of this signed agreement to FHC. FHC reserves the right to refuse any applicant.

Each food vendor space is a 20′ x 10′ area. No booth or canopy is provided by Centreville Day.

Until July 31 2016, the rate per 10’ deep x 20’ wide space is $200. After August 1, the rate increases to $250. After Sept 15, the rate is $300. (More than one space may be purchased.)

No Refund Policy
There are no refunds due to inclement weather and there will be no rain dates.

There are no refunds for any vendor shut down for noncompliance with County regulations, inspection failure, or other violation of festival requirements or decorum.

Water, Electricity & Propane
FHC will provide a nearby source of running, potable water. You must notify us if you will be using a generator or propane (check the appropriate boxes on the application). We cannot place you properly or obtain the proper permits without this information. FHC does not provide electricity. Food vendors requiring electrical power should plan on bringing their own portable QUIET generator. Generators must be placed 20 feet away from your work area and away from pedestrian traffic.

Expect enforcement of the following Fairfax County Fire regulations by the Fire Marshall:
• Canopies must be NFPA 701 flame resistant.
• All canopies should have a permanently affixed label indicating what materials it is made of. • All canopies must be secured against the wind. Please bring appropriate weights or stakes to secure canopies.

Health Department License
It is the Vendor’s responsibility to comply with all applicable Health Codes. Some, but not all, vendors will need a Temporary Food Permit.
