The 2021 Seasonal Concession Vending RFP closed April 19, 2021. Applicants will be notified by Monday, May 3, 2021.  Once applicants are notified, this webpage will be updated with any available vending locations. Late applicants will be reviewed for parks if space is available on a first-come first-served basis. 

Limitations Due to COVID-19 SUMMER 2021 

To continue reducing park crowding, the following measures are expected and may change and evolve:

  • Food and Non-Food concession permits will not be issued in most saltwater beach parks and some freshwater beach parks
  • Many busy regional parks may not be available for the same permitting as in prior years
  • Parking lots may be closed without notice at certain parks
  • All business are required to maintain and submit a Covid Safety plan that addresses all requirements outlined by Seattle-King County Public Health and Governor Inslee's office on re-opening for their specific activity.  

If you have obtained seasonal concession permits in parks that may not be available for 2021, please come prepared with three alternate locations when you apply. Parks are highlighted in green on Google maps or can be found on our website here.   We appreciate your understanding as we work to re-open recreational activities in Seattle Parks while maintaining some restrictions to continue protecting public health. 

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) seeks unique and interesting business collaborations that promote and enhance parks through a shared commitment to healthy people, healthy environment and strong communities.  Opportunities vary, with some sites appropriate for carts, food trucks, and other self-contained businesses. Most locations do not have storage or electricity available.  Small businesses, and Women and/or Minority Businesses (WMBE) are encouraged to submit proposals.
