To allow Festival attendees to sample different cuisines, each Sidewalk Café must provide a “3 for $3” or “5 for $5” sample plate option in their menu.
International Focus provides booth space and prep area with shared sink access. Vendors are expected to provide their own cooking equipment, utensils, and in-booth cold storage.
The Festival also offers space for smaller Dessert and Coffee stations.
The International Festival is Raleigh’s most sustainable large event, and we compost and recycle a majority of our waste. All Sidewalk Cafes must comply with the Festival’s Green Initiative and use compostable serving vessels and sustainable practices.
