The annual Denver Chalk Art Festival is seeking unique/high quality vendors serving a variety of foods. We ask vendors to elevate their overall presentation, which includes their selection of menu items, booth décor, and food presentation. The vendor selection process will include consideration of these factors and each applicant’s ability to fit within these guidelines.


When selecting participants for the Festival, we will consider:
Type & variety of food items to be sold and how they compliment event theme
Compliance with Denver's newly adopted "Waste No More" ordinance
Quality of food product, presentation, and perceived value
Event Management has sole discretion to select food vendors


  • Food Vendor Fee to participate is $1200 plus 20% of sales, and includes: 10’ x 20’ area (to be used for 10’ x 10’ tent plus 10’ x 10’ grilling area);  Fencing for cooking area (20 linear feet); One 20-amp circuit of 110-volt power
  • Novelty Food Vendor Fee to participate is $975 plus 20% of sales, and includes:  10' x 10' area; one 20-amp circuit of 110-volt power
  • Vendors will remit a commission of 20% of sales at the conclusion of the event. Vendors assume all responsibility for paying applicable state & local sales tax, therefore the calculation of the 20% is after taking taxes out. 
  • All vendors will supply their own tent, tables, cooking devices, storage devices, warm-water hand washing stations, garbage cans & liners for their station, cash boxes, and service ware. Event management can arrange for tent, tables or other rental items at vendors’ own cost. 


  • LIABILITY INSURANCE: Vendor liability insurance requirement is $1,000,000. Vendors selected to participate must remit a certificate of additional insured stating this coverage for the Denver Chalk Art Festival. Exact requirements are available HERE. 


  • Menu items should compliment the event while incorporating the specialties of the vendor
  • Items should be prepared at the vendors’ commissary kitchen and “finished” at the festival (minimal on-site prep)
  • Menus, portion sizes, and prices must be listed in the application and are subject to approval; changes to menu after the application has been submitted must also be approved in writing 
  • Beverage sales are permitted only with written approval from Event Management, and will only be allowed for hand-crafted (non-bottled) products 
  • Vendors may not alter menus, portions, or prices during the festival, unless approved in writing by Event Management 


Complete the online application process no later than April 1, 2023.
