Every year, our Official Festival Food Vendors offer Eastern Shore favorites and traditional festival fare for our visitors. From crab soup, oyster Po’ Boys, pit beef and soft crab sandwiches to dipped apples, burgers and so much more, Festival visitors always love grazing their way around town.

What you may not know is that by purchasing from these official vendors, you are supporting local non-profit organizations in our community, since every food vendor is either part of a non-profit or is donating its proceeds to one — while offering a small percentage to the Festival, too. It’s another way we can spread the love for fellow  Eastern Shore non-profits, who add so much to our community.

Become an Official Food Vendor

Official Food Vendors are selected each year by Easton’s Waterfowl Festival Commission – a Town of Easton entity charged with ensuring that Easton’s small town charm is preserved during our event.  Vendors must be non-profits (such as churches or volunteer fire companies) or can be caterers or restaurants that are donating proceeds to a local non-profit.  The Commission is currently accepting applications – via mail.  Application deadline is August 1, 2017!  Click here to download the Food Vendor Application

All Official Food Vendors (once approved by the Commission), restaurants wishing to serve outside their normal establishment and any other business wishing to serve food MUST ALSO submit an application to the Talbot County Health Department and be approved to receive a Temporary Food Permit therefrom.  Click here to download the Temporary Food Permit
