Accepting Applications from November 25 – December 11

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Are you looking for a spot to set up your food truck? The City has great locations on its beaches and parks to operate your business. Apply now for a vendor permit before time runs out.

The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department will begin accepting applications for vendors at its City beaches and parks beginning Wednesday, November 25, 2020, until 5 pm on Friday, December 11, 2020. Seven-month Vending Permits from March 2021 to September 2021 will be issued to vendors who qualify. There are two Cole Park and nine Gulf Beach vendor locations. In addition, vendors can also request other park locations throughout the city.

Applications will be reviewed, and if necessary, a drawing will be held to determine vendor locations if multiple vendors select the same location. Vendors will be notified after the selection has been made to issue the permits for the locations prior to the beginning of the permit period. The selected vendors are required to undergo and pass background checks prior to issuing permits. The application form and requirements are available on the City of Corpus Christi website.
