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.

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:
