UPDATE: Seeking Vendors for City Beaches & Parks

Website Correction

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Park and beach vendors continue to gain popularity and have enhanced the experience of our beach and park visitors! The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department is accepting applications from vendors to sell their goods or food at its City beaches and parks.

Seven-month Vending Permits from March 2019 to September 2019 will be issued to vendors. This will not affect current vendors approved through February. Applications are now being accepted until 5 pm on Friday, January 25, 2019, from vendors seeking permits to operate at City beaches or parks. Applications will be reviewed, and if necessary a drawing will be held, to determine vendor locations. Upon selection, vendors will be notified and the 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 form and requirements are available on the City of Corpus Christi website.
