Note: River Parks Authority retains sole and exclusive beer concessions and the right to sell carbonated beverages and water. Concessionaires are specifically prohibited from selling these, but may sell non-carbonated beverages (iced tea, lemonade, coffee, etc.) Concessionaires may sell sport drinks. However, you may only do so in accordance with the product sponsor of that event.

Any damages done to the River Parks Authority’s electrical infrastructure and/or equipment as a result of a vendors act or omission, will be the vendor’s responsibility to reimburse the River Parks Authority for the damages. The vendor will be notified within 5 working days of the problem.

If you need more than 50 Amps of electricity, you can be hardwired in. However, the River Parks Authority’s Licensed Electrical Contractor will perform ALL hardwiring! Vendors are PROHIBITED from hardwiring any items to the River Parks Authority electrical infrastructure and/or equipment.
