• Wellington City Council requires all stall holders to meet prescribed safe food handling requirements (if selling food). Non compliance may result in being asked to stop trading on the day.
• The Island Bay Festival takes no responsibility for your stall set up. Stall holders should come fully prepared on the day – and please note, as stipulated by the Wellington City Council, all structures must be weighted down, to ensure public safety. Strong or gusty winds are often present in Island Bay and if your site is not secure you may be asked to take any movable structures/covers (potential hazards) down. So please come prepared to hold down your wares and shade structures securely, as we cannot help with this on the day.

• Stall holders must take all of their waste away when they leave. The bins provided are for the use of festival attendees only. If caught dumping your waste/ leaving it behind, you may be asked to pay removal costs – and/ or not be invited back.

All vendors MUST abide by the Wellington City Council's (WCC) rules and regulations (See WCC website – Food stalls and food trucks). WCC staff will be on site to see that these regulations have been adhered to on the day and will close down any stall that fails to comply. Submitting this form shows you understand this and will comply. You must be familiar with, and responsible for health and safety requirements. You will also need to provide a photocopy of your license – on site – if applicable. All vendors are expected to present a well thought out stall. Consideration for others and the environment is important.
