UPDATE: Like all of you, we are actively monitoring developments related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on our beloved ClydeFEST. Due to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recent recommendations to limit gatherings of more than 50 people, we will unfortunately not be holding ClydeFEST on April 25, 2020.
With the recommendations of experts changing on a daily basis to help keep us all safe, we don’t have enough information at this time to make a definitive decision as to whether ClydeFEST will be rescheduled or cancelled. We pride ourselves in having a safe and fun environment for all our families during ClydeFEST and so we want to take the time to ensure we are doing what is best for our community. Right now, we are “pressing pause” on all of our ClydeFEST preparations until we have more information. We will continue to listen to the expert advice of our governor, school officials, and leading health organizations and will keep you posted.
Thank you for your patience, support, and partnership. Be well.
Food vendors with a variety of delicious and healthy foods are welcome to join ClydeFEST! Approximately 2,000 visitors have attended ClydeFEST in previous years, and we anticipate larger attendance each year. That’s a lot of bellies to feed!
Date & Time: Saturday, April 25, 2020. 11am–4pm. Rain Date: Sunday, April 26.
Food vendors should arrive by 9am to set up. There is no access to electricity at the Bynum Ballfield (the ClydeFEST location), so please plan to be self-sufficient. Food vendors are expected to remain open until ClydeFEST ends at 4pm.
Participation fee: 10% of gross sales. Fees will be collected as we all pack up at the end of ClydeFEST day.
Application Deadline: March 24, 2020.
**Note: Food vendors must have current proof of a permanent health department inspection certification and/or have completed a Temporary Food Establishment Permit Application with the Chatham County Health Department by March 10.
