Friday Locals Night - back for 2nd yearSolstice will again be curating a locals night for Friday evening, which will feature local food, wine, beer, music and art. A handful of food vendors will be selected to be open for business on Friday night to offer tasting menus. The remaining food vendors will not be open until Saturday at noon. We know sales are slower on Friday, so this is an effort to reduce the number of vendors competing for those sales and ease the added stress of having to be open on Friday night for the rest of you.
Food booths will have the option to setup on Friday or Saturday and be in place through Sunday. Food trucks or mobile food facilities will be invited to participate on Saturday only.
ExclusivityWe will no longer be offering exclusivity to any one vendor to be able to sell a specific product. We intend to curate the food court to feature a variety of foods that compliment, not compete, with one another.
In a continued effort to streamline the food court process and bring you more happy customers, Summer Solstice will no longer have a ticket booth or ticket system for the food court. All food vendors will pay a flat fee up front that is based on the type of food vendor they are [food truck, food booth, beverage, etc]. Food vendors will be responsible for handling their own money and sales.
Local vendors and those who procure ingredients from local and/or quality sources will be given preference. We encourage all of you to source as local and sustainable as possible from our area's farmers, ranchers, and food artisans - and to advertise your sourcing in your booth marketing materials and signage. Every effort will be made to curate a diverse offering of food and beverages from a variety of cultures.
