Vending Permits

The Parks & Recreation Department administers a vending program for commercial and non-profit vendors for food and merchandise sales in designated park locations.


Need to know if an open flame permit or vending permit is needed?

How to apply for an Open Flame Permit through the Juneau Permit Center:

  • Use the Permit Centers Online Permit Application
    • In the Permit Type drop down select "Other Permits"
    • In the description box list:
      • Open Flame for [your dates]
      • Equipment you'll be using (ex: grill, fryer, sterno heat source, etc.)
      • Any other applicable information
  • Or call 586-0770 to speak with a permit technician

All permits are issued on a first-come, first-served basis; designated locations, fee information, and insurance and DEC requirements are available upon request. The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation requires all vendors to obtain food service certificates, and non-profit organizations are required to provide a copy of a 501(c)(3) IRS form. Vendors are also required to provide a broker's certificate of public liability insurance. CBJ Fire Marshall requires an Open Flame Permit for Vendors.  You can review that information at:
