Event Vendors

Thank you for your interest in having a concession booth at this year's Live Oak Music Festival. The Live Oak Staff is gearing up for another exciting 2019 festival season as it plans for our new home at El Chorro Regional Park in San Luis Obispo, June 21-23. KCBX Public Radio is delighted to sponsor another incredible weekend of diverse music and enjoyment for the whole family.


We are recruiting local artisans, music vendors, and food & beverage vendors to round out our concessions offerings. The criteria for selection will emphasize uniqueness, high-quality, and artist-made product. Selected food and beverage concessions will provide healthy and diverse menus while meeting health and safety standards, complying with San Luis Obispo County Health Department regulations. All vendors are also required to obtain a seller's permit. Cooperation and "neighborliness" is encouraged among all vendors and makes the festival a pleasant event to work.

KCBX is the EXCLUSIVE SELLER of T-Shirts, Beer, and Wine, NO EXCEPTIONS. All proceeds benefit KCBX Public Radio.

The Live Oak Music Festival has become a major volunteer fundraising event that has helped KCBX maintain its quality programming while exploring ways to become financially self-sufficient. We appreciate your active support of public radio and ask that each concessionaire take an active part in "marketing" the Live Oak Music Festival in his or her community. Average daily attendance at Live Oak is approximately 3000.

KCBX is committed to making the Live Oak Music Festival as sustainable as we can. Our vendors can help us toward this goal by incorporating some of the following suggestions into their Live Oak planning.

Provide compostable or reusable utensils, plates, and napkins to your customers.

Use environmentally-responsible packaging materials such as reusable or compostable bags and non-Styrofoam to-go containers.

Buy food ingredients from local, organic growers.

Conserve water and reuse it whenever feasible.

Use solar power to heat water.

Use hand-crank flashlights & radios.

Pack it in, pack it out. Do not leave anything behind at the Festival.
