The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I'm getting into running smaller events (and hope to eventually get to bigger ones). I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with bringing vendors into city parks where the courses are located.

Can this be done? Are permits required?

I'd like to bring in food vendors, as well as local disc shops that might like to sell discs and accessories. The goal is to create an environment bigger than just an event with players. I'd like to really cater to the players in my events.

Any help, stories or advice that you can offer would really help me out.

I'm certainly not one to really answer the question given my relative newness (relative to the older guys), but I know that you can get vendors at the parks. One of the bigger tournaments I played last year had a small food vendor that was paid for by the club. They feed all the players (at least a certain amount anything extra had to be paid for out of pocket) the only thing we didn't have was alcohol which I'm sure was due to the price of getting the temp license for it.

Granted that things are different pending on which state that you're in, in which case I'd say to contact someone in your local government that deals with the parks. All and all, you need a license for alcohol given that it's even allowed at public parks even with a permit. You could always just hire a small company to cater, like a sub place or something of that nature...

Once again this is only a small amount of experience talking, so you may want to consult someone who has actually done this in the past. Hope it helps a little anyway...
Thanks for the reply. I'm planning on contacting local tournament directors and the city parks office for detailed information. It's good to hear that others have had companies come in and set up in the parks. It just occurred to me at our recent Ice Bowl, where there were no vendors set up.

That may be a bad sign, but you never know until you call.
