If I have Food Vendors do I need a County Health License Permit?

YES! 

The Environmental Health Unit (Unit) at Yavapai County Community Health Services (YCCHS) regulates and issues "temporary food service establishment" permits for food and beverage concessions at special events in Yavapai County. It is the Unit’s responsibility to regulate the food sold at these events. If food or drink is not prepared and handled in a sanitary manner, the public's health may be at risk.

In order to sell or give away any food or beverage product at an event,
you are required to apply for a "Special Event License."

You can find all the information needed and the link to the application here. You will need to submit your Special Event Food Vendor Application no later than THREE WEEKS out from the event.
