During ‘normal times’, any business preparing, serving or sampling food at temporary outdoor events is required to have at least one worker with a Summer Festival Certificate in the booth at all times.  Training must be taken each year.  Businesses exempt from this requirement are: cooking food trucks, and food carts or farmer market vendors that dispense packaged food, and farmers market vendors that do not prepare or sample food on site. While in April/May 2021 preparing food at outdoor events remains prohibited, this training is being offered in the event that restrictions lift later in the season.

If you would like to be notified of future training, please email with FESTIVAL in the subject line.
