Mandatory Meeting

In June, one to two weeks prior to 4thFest, all food vendors or their designated representatives must attend a mandatory meeting with the Johnson County Department of Health to review all current requirements and to pay any required fees. Once a food vendor’s application is approved they will be contacted with the date of this meeting.
