Yes. Food vendors can plug into ONE electricity point. Arrangements with details of the amount of power needed will need to be made prior to the event with the team. Vendors are requested to bring their own extension cords.
NB: Vendors are to ensure that none of their appliances or extension cords are faulty, failure to adhere to this, the vendor can be charged for any fire or inconvenience caused by this should the fault be traced back to the vendor’s appliance or extension cord(s) or similar.

Are eft pos facilities for vendors mandatory?
No, but cashless is often the preferred method of payment for many customers these days. While there is a nearby ATM, other options to facilitate card or e-payment include PayPal and QR Scan options which we highly recommend. Future events may possibly run on a cashless system which the event team will set up and all vendors will then be required to use.
No marquees are permitted internally. Marquees may be permitted outdoors where possible.
Can I pick my location at the event?
No, stall locations are allocated by the Tastes and Treats events team. All stalls are grouped appropriately.
