Over 5,000 people head out each month to Eats & Beats. If you would like to join our exciting food line up, apply to be a vendor
The application process to be a vendor at Eats & Beats has been updated for 2019.
The new process takes on board feedback from previous vendors, evolution of the event and changes to operational costs and procedures.
The updated process aims to provide vendors with a longer lead time to prepare for events and more flexibility to secure other bookings. It also reduces administration and the time required to apply for each event.
Food vendors will have the opportunity to submit an expression of interest via two rounds per year.
Round 2 will open on Monday 10 June 2019 and will close at midnight on Sunday 16 June 2019 for the remaining events of the year. Round 1 for 2020 will open in early January.
Applications for Eats & Beats is only via the online application.
To be considered vendors must fulfil a number of criteria and applications must be completed in full. When submitting your application please provide as much detail as possible.
Applying for Eats & Beats does not guarantee acceptance to the event. On average only 25 sites are available for each event.
We cannot accept all applications received so for fairness, Eats & Beats endeavours to rotate applicants regularly to give new vendors a chance to attend the event, as well as giving our patrons new food experiences month to month.
Previous acceptance does not mean you will be accepted to Eats & Beats every month.
