2019 BAYOU BOOGALOO FOOD VENDOR APPLICATION
Friends of Bayou St. John is happy to announce that the 14th Annual Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo Festival will take place Friday, May 17th - Sunday, May 19th, 2018, along Bayou St. John between Toulouse and Dumaine St.'s.

We are now accepting food vendor applications from restaurants and caterers who are fully licensed, permitted and insured to sell food. We anticipate a lot of applicants and encourage you to apply sooner rather than later.

Vendors will be allowed to serve 3 items and a combo plate. If you don’t have a combo plate, then 4 items are acceptable. No food vendors are allowed to sell beverages of any kind.

Vendors will be selected based on quality and those who will collectively offer the best variety. Keep in mind that it will be hot, so, light items do well and gluten-free options are also encouraged. We also strongly suggest that you submit something unique, created exclusively for Bayou Boogaloo, that can be easily duplicated in an outdoor environment.

A tasting may be required from all those who pass the first round of selections. Previous participation does not exclude from this step.
