Preference will be given to stall holders who provide locally made and sourced products, with offerings from a range of gourmet and ethnic food and beverages, wine, cider, craft beer and fresh produce. Stalls will be located in the Kenilworth Town Park and neighbouring vacant block, on both sides of Charles Street next to the park, as well as in the grounds of Kenilworth Dairies.
It is incumbent on stall holders, where relevant, to ensure they comply with local and state government requirements relating to licensing of stalls, handling of food and insurance coverage. The Food Fest organisers are committed to making the festival as environmentally friendly as possible, and encourage all stall holders to keep this in mind when developing their product.
It is expected that the Food Fest will attract at least 5000 visitors to Kenilworth, so applicants for stalls must be confident that they can supply sufficient stock to trade throughout the festival. Applicants should be aware that an application does not grant automatic approval. All applications will be considered by the organising committee, and applicants will be informed by 31 March 2019 if their application has been successful or not.
