The following comments are not for the Larimer County Permit, but include requirements of the County Health Dept for food service and recommendations for a safer guest experience:

=Each food vendor shall hold either a 2019 Colorado Mobile retail food license (food trucks, push carts, trailers); or a 2019 Larimer County Temporary Event license (all vendors in a tent, even licensed restaurants, need a separate temp event license for Special Event sales).

=Potable water shall be made available to event guests by drinking fountains, commercial bottled water, or from approved water dispensing containers. Drinking water must come from an approved public supply.

=Trash cans shall be distributed throughout the site, especially next to portable restroom area, food vending and seating areas. For most events, the equivalent of one 20 gallon container per 10 people is appropriate. It is recommended to also provide receptacles for recyclables which have signs/pictures of what can be recycled at the event.

=A petting zoo is identified for goat was identififed on the event website. We strongly recommend a handwash station for people exiting the petting zoo area.
