Traditional Special Events

Traditional Special Events are those where the majority of the food service is provided by food vendors who obtain their own food permitting through SNHD and there is usually point of sale with the individual food service vendor. Annual Itinerant, Mobile Vendor and Temporary Food Establishment permit holders may participate in special events with event coordinator approval.

Event Coordinator Responsibilities

The EC is responsible for sanitation support services and coordination of food operations as specified in Chapter 15 and Appendix I of the 2010 SNHD Regulations Governing the Sanitation of Food Establishments. The Event Coordinator (EC) or designated responsible person shall be available on site at all times during the special event.

Event Coordinator Application

The Event Coordinator must submit an application and pay associated fees at least seven days before the event to avoid late fees. Incomplete applications will be denied.

Effective July 1, 2015, the Event Coordinator permits fees associated with traditional special events are assessed based upon the size of the event as reflected by the number of vendors. Those events with a greater number of vendors typically have a larger footprint and larger infrastructure to inspect to assure public health issues are properly assessed.
