Chamizal National Memorial provides opportunities for Food, Beverage Vendors

Chamizal National Memorial is providing business opportunities for food and beverage vendors at regularly-scheduled and special events that take place at the Memorial during 2020.

The events currently planned for the year are:

  • Music Under the Stars on June 7, 14, 21, and 28, 2020
  • Mexican Independence Celebration on September 19 (may change to September 12), 2020
  • Borderland Heritage Festival on a Saturday to be determined in October, 2020

Dates for additional events may be added during the year. If so, vendors will be notified thirty days prior to the scheduled event.

The Memorial is also interested in theme-related food and beverage items to complement occasional, specific events at various times throughout the summer season. There are eight electrical spaces to accommodate a maximum of eight vendors operating at any one event.

A Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) is required to provide food and beverage services at Chamizal National Memorial. The application processing fee is $50, non-refundable, which must accompany each application.

Upon vendor selection there is an additional fee of $250 for the CUA. Commercial Use Authorization request packages will be available beginning November 1, 2019 and must be returned no later than November 30, 2019.

Applications are available for download at the park’s website, or potential vendors can pick them up at the administration building at Chamizal National Memorial from Monday to Friday between 8 am and 4 pm.
