Menu Options / Dietary Requirements
We aim to have a broad range of food options and appreciate the diversity of our audiences as well as the food available to them!
Previously, selected Food Vendors have demonstrated a variety of food options within their menu. Menus with a number of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free or nut-free and dessert options are highly regarded. Menus generally must at least have a vegetarian main meal option in order to be considered.
Affordable pricing options
Pop Up Bar is a free event and we have members from the community attending from all walks of life. Food Vendors with menu items at a broad range of price points are more likely to be successful.
Sustainable / 'Green' practices
Pop Up Bar as well as our event partner City of Kingston encourages sustainability.
Vendors with sustainable practices around packaging, straws, landfill, recycling, food waste, and water usage are at an advantage. Kingston Arts strongly discourages the use of single-use plastics.
Adherence to public health guidelines
In light of government restrictions and public health guidelines, we are looking at how our vendors work within these for the safety of audiences.
