FOOD VENDOR APPLICATION

Note: For Retail Vendors, please sign up here
-- For Food Vendors, sign up form is at the bottom --

This year's events will look a little different due to demolition of Town Hall and building of bathrooms at Flanders Park. We are moving Escalante Days and Harvest Fest to Joe Rowell Park this year. Escalante Days will be a 3-day festival to take advantage of the Escalante Days Softball Tournament attendees who will begin to show Friday afternoon August 9th and stay thru Sunday August 11th. You can choose to do only Escalante Days Saturday, or you can add on Friday & Sunday. You are not required to stay the full hours of the festivals, but vehicles will only be allowed onto the fields before or after the events for drop off and pick up.

Food Truck and Food Vendor Guidelines

  • You must apply as a food vendor if you are preparing food on-site at the events. This does not apply to Cottage foods like canned goods or pre-wrapped baked goods.

  • You must have your County Health Department certifications in place prior to the event. Vendors preparing and serving food on-site are required to have food handler's license or equivalent. Specific food handling questions should be directed to the County Health Department at block@co.montezuma.co.us  (The Health Department will do a few unannounced inspections every season, please make sure to always have permit & paperwork on hand)

  • Food Trucks must be permitted to operate in the Town of Dolores to be at any event (this is different than the county food truck permit). Please contact david@townofdolores.com or call (970)882-7720 to set up your Dolores Food Truck Inspection.

  • There are a limited number of Food Vendors that will be confirmed at each event. Submitting this form does not guarantee you a space at the event until confirmed by the event director. We will need to make sure there are no major food duplications before confirming. Applications will be on a first submitted, first confirmed basis.

  • Important Note: Colorado Dept. of Revenue has been cracking down on vendors at events to ensure they are paying sales tax. We have received notice from the state that they may be requesting vendor lists this year, so please make sure you are following tax rules and submitting the 2.9% State Tax and the 4% Dolores sales tax on taxable items. You can apply the first time using form DR 0589 (Special Event Sales Tax Application) or renew your application from previous years using form DR 0593 (Renewal of Multiple Event Sales Tax License) and submit your taxes using form DR 0098 (Special Event Retail Sales Tax Return). Submissions are usually due by the 20th of the following month. More info and forms can be found here: https://tax.colorado.gov/sales-use-tax-forms
