It’s time to pump up our pumpkin foods at the Festival! Your businesses or non-profit organization has the opportunity to join the Festival in launching a Pumpkin Food Court. This new area will provide Festival goers a taste of everything pumpkin! The food court will be located in a highly-visible, prime location. The CSD is looking for food-related businesses and/or non-profit organizations to host the booths in this area. There is no up-front cost to the vendor.
The CSD will provide:
1) 10X10 Food Tent set up/equipment including but not limited to enclosed tents, floor coverings, 6ft tables, chairs and fire extinguishers.
2) Limited electrical and refrigeration/freezer.
3) Booth name and menu signs.
4) Pay for and coordinate Health Department fees and permits.
Only pumpkin food and/or drink items will be permitted to be sold in your booth. Store bought foods will not be accepted. All items must be approved by the CSD. The CSD will expect 15% of vendor gross revenue after the event to cover costs of tents, electrical, fees and permits, etc.
We are really looking for some savory pumpkin dishes. Some pumpkin food ideas include:
Pumpkin donuts Pumpkin muffins/cupcakes
Pumpkin bread Pumpkin chili
Harvest/pumpkin soup Risotto with pumpkin
Pumpkin waffles or pancakes Pumpkin fries
