All vendors are required to fill out and return a vendor agreement form and a deposit check by January 17, 2020. Any vendor serving food or beverages will also be responsible for securing an operating permit from the New York State Department of Health at least 30 days before the event. This permit must be displayed at all times food is being sold or prepared.

PLEASE NOTE: This is an all-outdoor event. The Winter Carnival takes place regardless of the weather, which can be anything from the 40's and sunny to sub-zero and blizzard conditions. If the items for sale are not conducive to cold weather, or cannot be protected from rain or snow, you may wish to re-consider. There are no utilities provided, (e.g. water, sewer, electric, garbage pickup, etc.,) and no shelter. Vendors are responsible for providing their own tents, tables, etc.

All vendors will be assigned a location in the parking lot next to the Ice Palace. The specific location is at the sole discretion of the Carnival Committee. Locations are available on the first and last weekends of the Winter Carnival only (Saturday and Sunday, February 1 & 2 and Saturday and Sunday, February 8 & 9). The parking lot will be closed early on the first Saturday and last Sunday to allow for fireworks setup. Specific locations may also be available in the parks along the parade route.
