Vendor selection is based on a first come, first served basis with a limit of 6- 8 vendors.
The fee for competition only teams is $175 payable to the City of Abbeville.
The City’s Fire Chief will be coming around to each vendor after load in to issue each vendor a permit. Permits will be given on the basis of the 2018 International Fire Code Regulations, adopted by South Carolina in 2020. To mention a few, cook teams are required to have a fire extinguisher at their cook station and can NOT have grills under tents. Please read the Mobile Food Truck Information Bulletin at the end of this application for more information on all requirements.
Please note that while you may have received a permit in other municipalities, Abbeville MUST issue its own permit yearly in accordance with the interpretation of the City’s Fire Chief. Permits are valid within the City limits for the full year in which they are obtained. However, an inspection still may be required later in the year.
Vendors who fail to meet fire code, and therefore fail to gain their permit, will NOT be allowed to cook/serve ANY food from their food trucks/trailers. Absolutely NO refunds for your vending space will be given if you do not meet the fire code.
Vendors are strongly encouraged to meet with the Abbeville City Fire Chief prior to the festival to gain their permit. Questions about the inspection should be directed to Abbeville City Fire Chief Chris Clemmons at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 864-366-9461.
Teams should carefully read over the International Fire Code Regulations to prepare for the festival.
Power is NOT provided. Teams will be allowed to bring a silent generator if power is necessary for competing. Teams will have access to water but will be required to provide their own hose pipes.
Vendors will be provided with a 20 ft x 15 ft space on North Main Street.
If you are competing in the SBN Competition, carefully read over SBN’s rules and regulations on the City of Abbeville’s website. More information such as turn in times will be sent once vendors are accepted. NEW THIS YEAR! We’re excited to host Hogs and Hens as an open competition and offer monetary prizes to the Grand Champion, Grand Champion Reserve, as well as first place in all five categories.
