      • Thank you!

        I’d really like to be involved in this competition, but I’m curious about how this competition is going to be judged. There’s such a large variety of different types of food being served by the food trucks…are there going to be different categories of judging. For example, I offer home made from scratch baked goods. Baked goods (sweets) and savory foods can’t really be judged the same because of the difference. I mean baked goods can’t really be judged together with savory foods…there’s too big a difference.

        Also, this is the first event I’ve heard of that requires $1M in business liability coverage for vehicles. We all have business liability coverage on our vehicles (not the same as business liability coverage on our business itself), but not $1M worth. And my insurance company is not going to amend my business liability coverage on my vehicle for this one day event. The fact that a signature indemnifying Clark County et al, as well as $1M in business liability coverage, should be sufficient protection for everyone I would think. I’m reviewing my business liability coverage to see if my truck is included in that coverage versus requesting my auto insurance company to upgrade my vehicle liability coverage to $1M.

        As a cottage food producer, I’m not required to be licensed the same as food trucks who prepare food onsite. There seems to be some confusion in your rules and regulations regarding this subject, although I will say there’s a lot of confusion and contradictory information between State and local health organizations and inspectors. I’ve been inspected many times by individuals in the same organization and each time I receive different information!

        Thanks again.

      • Thanks for the reply and questions, Chrys. I have shared your message and information with the folks directly involved in the specifics you have mentioned above and suggested they contact you to help answer your questions. Keep an eye open for an email!

    • Hi Judy,

      Those attending the competition can park at a number of places around the event, including the art center, the park on plum, fountain and surrounding neighborhoods, and Mercy Hospital.

      We hope to see you there!
