CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Looking for ways to supplement your income or have your own business? The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department is now accepting applications from vendors to sell their products or food during the next six months, from March to August 2018. We currently have two spots at Cole Park and 13 on City Gulf beaches available.

This will not affect current vendors approved through February. Applications are now being accepted until 5pm on Friday, January 26, 2018, from vendors seeking permits to operate at City beaches or Cole Park. Applications will be reviewed, and if necessary a drawing will be held to determine vendor locations. Upon selection, vendors will be notified and a permit will be issued for the location prior to the beginning of the permit period. Vendors selected to receive permits may be required to undergo and pass background checks prior to issuing permits. The application is available on the City of Corpus Christi website at http://www.cctexas.com/detail/city-beach-park-vendor-permits.
