Menu Selection

Each participant is entitled to offer three (3) exclusive main food items. In the event of multiple entries received by APRIL 10, 2018, a lottery will be held to determine exclusivity. Exclusivity will be guaranteed by the Committee in the event of multiple entries received after APRIL 10, 2018. Three side dishes will also be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. To help you in your selection decisions, enclosed is a copy of the food items offered last year.


Food booths are located inside a tent, facing the Main Stage with chairs and tables. Each food booth is 10 x 10, with counters and sign posts. Hand sinks are provided in the food area; access to water will also be available.

One twenty (20) amp circuit will be provided with four (4) electrical outlets – additional power can be supplied for an additional fee. Your electrical needs must be specific. (PLEASE SEE AMPERAGE INFORMATION SHEET ENCLOSED.) We must know these electrical needs, in advance, so the wiring for your booth can be completed prior to your arrival. Our space and capacity are limited; any major equipment not specified in the application will not be allowed or accepted. Please use propane-based equipment whenever possible.


Signage must be provided by the vendors, be generic in nature and be related to the vendor and specific foods offered. Signage should be attractive and readable for best results. Price sheets must be posted, visible and at least 11” x 17” in size. All signage must remain in your designated food booth; no solicitation outside of the area is permitted.


Food Vendor Booth Fee – $600.00 prior to APRIL 9, 2018; $650.00 thereafter
Specialty Beverages – $300.00 per each beverage
Additional twenty (20) amp circuit – $75.00
220 Volt Single Phase – $100.00

Vendor Specification

Selection will be based on the following: First priority will be given to vendors who participated last year; second priority will be given to Streamwood businesses and finally, to all other businesses. Summer Celebration reserves the right of first refusal. Applications will be numbered upon receipt of application and fee. You may fax your application at (630) 837-0242; however, exclusivity will only be considered upon receipt of a completed and signed application including payment. You will receive a confirmation letter in July listing your exclusive menu item(s) and booth position along with other necessary paperwork and information including times for equipment set-up and drop-off. Please return your application as soon as possible; however, no applications will be accepted after June 1, 2018.

Health and Sanitation Meeting

There will be a mandatory meeting (date to be determined) held for all food vendors, in July, at the Streamwood Village Hall (301 E. Irving Park Road). The purpose of this meeting is to discuss food set-up requirements. Representatives from the Cook County Health Department and the Village Community Development Department will be available to answer any questions.


At the conclusion of the event, you are responsible for cleaning up your space.  Please pick-up all garbage and debris prior to leaving the festival grounds.  If you need assistance, with garbage bags or rakes for this effort, please advise Public Works.

Any questions, comments or suggestions can be referred to Mary Cornett at (630) 736-3803.  We will make every effort to provide assistance or guidance in order to make your participation a pleasurable experience. 

With your cooperation and participation, we look forward to another great Summer Celebration!
