How can I become a food vendor at the Park?

Klyde Warren Park’s food trucks are an important part of our guest experience, and our revenue-sharing model helps to keep the Park clean, safe and active. We make every effort to choose a wide variety of food vendors offering unique and artisan foods that complement one another.

At this time, our truck spots are fully committed. However, we do keep a list of interested vendors and consult that list when we have an opening for a particular type of food.

To be considered as a potential vendor, please email info@klydewarrenpark.org with the following:
• A copy of your menu (remember to include pricing)
• A photo of your truck or cart (no trailers)
• Your utility requirements/generator specifications and truck/cart dimensions
• A copy of your city permit

Please be advised that we are unable to consider your truck until it is fully operational and has a complete menu

Once we receive the complete information, we will let you know if we can add you to the interest list. Adding your business to this list is our way of keeping track of your interest, but it does not guarantee a space in the Park. Additional food truck selections are made based on the needs of the Park at a given time, and there is no set time frame of when an opportunity may arise.

Thank you for your interest!

Chairs & Seating
