  1. PENNSYLVANIA STATE FOOD EMPLOYEE CERTIFICATE:  Updated 1/22/11.  One person from your operation must hold a valid National Exam Certificate.  There is no need for any kind of license. Only events that are 3 days or longer require licenses.  Vendors should follow guidelines listed on website.  Vendor must check website: http://www.agriculture.stat. foodsaftyfiles/temporary
  2. Mercantile Tax Registration Form: All vendors located in Richland Township are already covered for their mercantile taxes.  Normally, a business from outside the Township would need a transient merchant license; however, because this is a township-sponsored event this stipulation will be waived.
  3. Vendors participating in this event will need to provide a Certificate of Insurance, which names Richland Community Days event as a named insured for the festival weekend.  We require specific minimum limits: $1,000,000 per occurrence / $2,000,000 aggregate annual.  This will insure that all food vendors are adequately insured against liability claims that may arise from their participation in this type of event.  Information must be included with your application.  It is suggested that you:
  4. Call the insurance agent who handles your property and/or liability coverage,
  5. Ask your agent if your festival participation is already covered under the terms of your policy,
  6. If it is already covered, your agent may be able to send a Certificate of Insurance to you at no additional charge.  Simply ask to have Richland Community Days added as an “additional insured” for the dates of August 17th through August 18th, 2018

If your festival participation is not presently covered, ask that a rider be added to your current policy with Richland Community Days as a named insured.  Adding a rider to your current policy will be significantly cheaper.
If you have Insurance questions, please contact:  Duaine Detrick, MBA, Allstate Insurance Company,
