Food Vendors - Other Carnivals


We are now accepting Food Vendor applications for our upcoming 2022 Carnivals! If you are looking for the State Fair, please apply here: https://www.theleadfest.com/p/vendors/food-vendors


When filling out your application, please select the location you wish to set up at. If you are applying for multiple locations, you will need to fill out an application for each.


We request that you will be available for every day that the Carnival is operating but will try to honor special requests case by case, if made in advance in writing.


Food Vendor Guidelines:
  • Vendors will pay a $500 upfront guarantee for their space. L.E.A.D. FEST will receive 20% of the vendor’s sales. Should the percentage of sales go over $500, we would deduct the $500 guarantee from the final number.
  • Food vendors will be given unlimited space, within reason, and are responsible for paying for their own health and fire permits. Space within the grounds, however, is limited – we will accept location requests but cannot guarantee you will receive that space.
  • Vendors must be present for all dates of the event. Any vendor that leaves early will be charged a fee. You must supply L.E.A.D. with a credit card number and authorization agreeing to these terms at check-in.
  • Each vendor must always have a person at their booth.
  • Products offered for sale must be appropriate for an audience of all ages. Event organizers reserve the right to refuse the sale or display of any items deemed inappropriate.
  • Sales must be contained within the leased space. Spaces may not be transferred or subleased.

  • Each application requires a $100 refundable security deposit check that will be returned to you if there is no damage to your area.
  • A $100 utility fee will be charged to all food concessionaires. This fee includes water, electric, trash removal, and general grounds cleanup. All grease and oils must be removed by vendor. Vendors are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness and appearance of their display areas.
  • All vendors must provide insurance or purchase their own through our account. Certificates of Insurance must be addressed to the following entities:
L.E.A.D. Inc.
5 South Main Street
Allentown, NJ 08501

  • COIs may be attached below in the form or submitted later via email to Leanne at lseeley@leadrugs.org or in the mail to the L.E.A.D. Headquarters. Additional COIs for the event location may be needed at a later date.
