Food Vendors

1st Fridays on the Lawn – Food Vendors 

The City of Wilson – Human Relations Commission sponsors a city-wide annual concert series. The celebrations are held every first Friday of July, August, September and October. The concerts celebrate family fun and invite a variety of musical talent and local performance groups to entertain.


Local food vendors, restaurants, non-profits and community groups may apply to be considered as food vendors. Vendors can expect an average of 400-800 citizens in attendance at each concert. 

The Human Relations Office is now accepting applications for the 2013 concert dates:

  •  July 5
  • August 2
  • September 6
  • October 4

To maximize vendors’ time and efforts, we limit participation to a coulple vendors per concert due to space and utiltity needs, and only one food type per vendor.  For example, only one vendor may be the "bake sale" table per concert date.  Applications will be considered for variety of food served, family based pricing and willingness to support community celebrations.

All vendors must be certified by the Wilson Health Department.
