What You Should Know
If you are planning to sell food at a public event in Prince George’s County, you may need a Temporary Food Service Facility Permit. These permits are issued to prospective food and drink vendors that operate in conjunction with a fair, festival, carnival, community day, concession stand, or other special events.
A completed Temporary Food Service Facility Permit Application (PDF) and fee must be submitted to the Prince George’s County Health Department no later than 7 business days prior to the event taking place. An onsite inspection may occur to ensure compliance with health codes and County laws and regulations.
Those who choose to mail the application should send the completed form and fee at least 2 weeks prior to the event start date.
Additional permits may be required by other County departments. Contact the Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement at 301-883-5776 for more detailed information.
