Rules and Regulations
Simple Application below
City Vendor Fee:
The City of Milpitas requires any vendor located within the City of Milpitas to have a business license. If your business is located within city limits, you must submit a copy of your business license with this application. If your company is not located within city limits, you are required to hold a Temporary Vendor Permit. The fee is $5 and is listed in the fee section of the application. Please remit this fee with your application and we will file the necessary permit application for you.
California Department of Tax & Fee Administration:
All vendors are required to submit a valid California Resale Number with application. Exempt vendors must submit California Department of Tax & Fee Administration form CDTFA-410-D with completed application. Documentation for exempt vendors must be submitted with your completed application. Form CDTFA-410-D can be found here: cdtfa.ca.gov/formspubs/cdtfa410d.pdf
All vendors are required to obtain their own health permit specific to the Milpitas Festival of the Arts from the County of Santa Clara Environmental Health Department. A health permit for your kitchen does not satisfy this requirement. Proof of an issued health permit, covering the entire duration of the Festival, must be received by the Milpitas Chamber of Commerce no later than August 1st, 2022. Vendors who do not submit proof of an issued health permit by this date will not be allowed to participate in the Festival of the Arts and will forfeit all fees. An application can be filled out at: acgov.org/aceh/food/TFF_Application_Booth.pdf
Food Menu Approval:
Each vendor must have food items approved by the Festival Committee. No changes may be made without prior approval. In order to prevent saturation, the festival will limit the selling of the same type of food items. Vendors may be asked to change from a specific food item if it is found that too many vendors are selling similar items. The vendors selling that food item for the longest period of time will be allowed to continue selling that item.
Cleaning Deposit Fee:
A $100 refundable deposit cleaning fee must accompany the completed application. The deposit will be refunded within 30 days following the Art and Wine Festival 2022 inspections indicating that the booth was in a clean and undamaged condition. If inspection reveals an unclean booth space, exhibitors will be given a warning to correct any issues.
Food and beverages may be served from the front of the booth only.
Although product sampling is encouraged, the distributing of samples must be done within the confines of your booth. Individuals may not stand outside the booth and distribute samples.
The Chamber does not supply ice; however, ice is available on site and is the responsibility of the organization to purchase as needed.
Trucks will not be allowed on the Festival site before 9:00 p.m. on Friday, October 7th, 2022. The Festival Committee must approve parking placement of trucks.
