The Adäka Cultural Festival is seeking food vendors for the 2019 Adäka Cultural Festival to sell healthy foods to the visiting public and Festival participants. We are seeking vendors who can operate out of the cultural centre’s kitchen, as well as vendors who can set up food trucks on site.
Note: vendors are responsible for the safe disposal of their grey water.
Use of public receptacles by vendors is prohibited.
We encourage Festival vendors to work with us to help keep the Festival grounds and our community clean. We are working hard to reduce the environmental footprint of the Festival and we strongly encourage vendors to be conscious of their waste by using recyclable and compostable service ware whenever possible, and composting any food scraps. Vendors are required to dispose of their own compost.
Note: This is a requirement of Environmental Health Services, but is also happily enforced by Adäka Cultural Festival staff as the safety of our Festival patrons is very important to us!
The public will have access to hand washing stations in the Cultural Centre washrooms. Individual food vendors are also expected to comply with Environmental Health requirements for hand washing.
All fees must be paid by June 21st, 2019 by either cash or cheque. Fees are non-refundable in the case of a no-show. Cheques are payable to Yukon First Nations Culture & Tourism Association
