Fast facts for Food Vendors

  • If you have a trailer or food truck, it is helpful if you are able to set up on Saturday, July 30. Alumni representatives will be on-site Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to assist you. If you are not able to set up on Saturday, we require your unit to be set by 8:30 a.m. on Sunday. You will only have access to set up in the above listed days and times as there are gates to the property that will lock after these hours. 

  • Vending space is at a premium. Your vending unit is the only vehicle authorized to be onsite at this event once the show begins. All non-vending vehicles must be parked in the adjacent parking lots by 9:30 a.m. Tow vehicles and trailers must be parked in the adjacent parking lots as well.

  • Dropping a vehicle in advance of your set-up to "save" your location is prohibited. Vendors will be placed in the order in which they arrive on site with their vending units. Please be courteous to fellow vendors, artists and volunteers by following our guidelines.

  • Soda and water sales are prohibited. The UToledo Alumni Association reserves the right to sell soda and water.

  • Multiple vendors: The UToledo Alumni Association reserves the right to enlist the use of multiple vendors and strives to keep duplication of menu items to a minimum, but reserves the right to add items as deemed beneficial to the event.
