NEW FOR 2022: Council of the Town of Collingwood has adopted a lottery process for assigning food vendors requesting to be located on public property. Food vendors wishing to apply for a spot on public property should apply by Saturday, April 30, 2022 (April 1st in future years). Vendors must self select a general food category from the provided list and may rank up to three pre-selected public property locations. Should more than one application from the same general food category (or categories) be received for the same public location then a lottery would be conducted from those applications. The winner of those lotteries and all other applications for the same location will be entered into a lottery with the winner(s) drawn at random. Should an applicant not be successful in obtaining their preferred location, their name will be entered into the lottery for their second-choice location and so on. All public location lotteries are conducted annually with no right of renewal for existing vendors.
If there are fewer applications than pre-selected locations and all applications received after the deadline will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.
Any attempts to transfer or convey lottery positions between vendors will result in the disqualification of both parties.
Food Vendor Lotteries - May 3, 2022 - 10:00 a.m.
Public location food vendor lotteries were conducted on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. at the Collingwood Public Library - 3rd Floor Community Room C (55 Ste. Marie St., Collingwood).
Affected vendors have been notified, thank you to all our applicants!
