FOOD VENDOR POLICY

All vendor information will be shared with the Interior Health Department and the Health Inspector may contact you in advance. Contact Dilivar Rana via email dilavar.rana@interiorhealth.ca.

All vendors must also comply with BC Fire code required – CAN/ULC 1254 Standard. Any vendor failing to comply with the above requirements will not be hooked up and will not receive a refund.

  • Food vendors are also required to carry and supply a copy of $2 million liability insurance and name Salmon Arm Folk Music Society as additional insurance. 
  • Environment Policy The goal is to improve our environmental sustainability. Every year we are committed, where possible, to adopt practices that reflect sustainable principles and best practices. We have committed to implementing a composting program that includes our volunteer, vendor and beverage areas.
  • In addition, we have implemented a policy of no single use water bottles to be sold on site. Fundamental to this approach is the use of compostable plates, cutlery, napkins, straws, cups and glasses. The use of Styrofoam and non-compostable packaging, such as aluminum foil is not acceptable otherwise you will lose your damage deposit of $500. Single serving condiment packages are to be avoided to prevent contamination of the compost. To facilitate this objective all materials must be CERTIFIED COMPOSTABLE, NOT BIODEGRADABLE or RECYCLABLE. 
  • If you do not use all compostable you will have to leave the grounds, no refunds.
  • NO REFUND POLICY
