Food Trucks & Mobile Vendors

Windsor has many events that present opportunities for mobile food vendors to sell their products. In order to be eligible to sell at Windsor events, you must be an approved vendor with all necessary licenses and complete an application. For information on licensing in Weld County, visit the Weld County Environmental Health Services website.

Food vendors chosen to sell at Windsor Parks, Recreation and Culture events will depend on experience, variety of options and other factors. We limit the number of food vendors at events based on event size. To be considered for Windsor events, please fill out the application and staff will contact you.
