Food truck slots are limited at each park or event, and will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Vendors will be required to sign and submit a standard operating agreement ahead of time to confirm compliance with all state and county regulations in order to vend within Maryland State Parks. Although there is no upfront fee to operate in the park, vendors are required to submit 10% of any gross sales over $500 for each daily event within the state facility to park staff before vacating the premises for the day.

For general information about food truck operations in Maryland State Parks, please email Tim Hamilton at timothy.hamilton@maryland.gov or call 443-422-4174.
