Calgary Spring Show: Food Vendors

There is no catering kitchen at the Big Four for prepping samples or cleaning dishes and utensils.

Makies serving/sampling any food or drink at all are required to set up a temporary handwash station in their booth. It's a cheap and easy thing to do, and we look at it as an indicator of how seriously we all take the health and well-being of show attendees. Preference will be given to Makies who have demonstrated a similar commitment to public safety when we jury applications to future shows.

Here are the AHS guidelines for setting up a temporary handwashing station:


The Environmental Health Officer needs to inspect our food vendor booths at the start of the show. Therefore food vendors must be at their booths at 10:00 a.m. on Friday to be present for inspection.

Food sellers requiring any small appliance (kettle, mini fridge, etc) MUST purchase a power upgrade for their booth. If you need additional power and haven't already purchased it, you may purchase some directly from the show's electrical supplier (order online here, or download their PDF here).
