Food Events and
In Gallatin County, there are numerous temporary events held throughout the year at which food is served to the general public (for example: Christmas Stroll, Sweet Pea, Potato Festival, Customer Appreciation BBQ, etc.). In these situations, all vendors that will be serving food to the public, both for a fee or for free, must possess either:
A Montana Retail Food License (mobile or catering endorsement)
A Temporary Event Food Service
Both of these permits are approved by the Gallatin City-County Health Department’s Environmental Health Services, and licensing fees may be required.
