Wells Carnival – Information for Catering Stalls

Wells Carnival 2020 – Friday 31st July to Sunday 9th August inclusive.

Thank you for your interest in having a Catering Stall at Wells Carnival. Please read thoroughly the information below before completing the enquiry form.

We are keen to support regionally based businesses, locally sourced produce, bio-degradable and minimum packaging stalls plus  stallholders who dispose of their own packaging waste etc.  We have many applications each year and try to opt for stalls that will offer a varied range of products and prices for our visitors.

We aim to have a maximum of 6 main catering stalls at our events offering as wide a range of food as possible.  We have our own Carnival Catering providing burgers, hog roast and hot dogs.

On Fete Day and Carnival Day caterers must commit to staying through for the daytime and evening.


Our standard minimum pitch size is 3m wide x 4.5m deep.  Your pitch requirements must include size of any essential unit that needs to be on site while you are trading e.g. storage, generator. We allow a depth of 4.5 metres; your frontage must include the entire length of your trading pitch including any banners, A frames etc which are only permitted within  your pitch boundary


Due to the amount of electricity required to power catering stalls we request that stallholders provide their own silent generator.  However, in some circumstances we can offer electricity to a small limited number of outdoor pitches – please include full details of requirements on the form below.  Electricity must be requested and booked in advance.   We will require full details of all equipment to be used and Stallholders should provide their own PAT tested extension cables.

Stalls for Wells Carnival events will be confirmed within approx 2/3 weeks of the initial enquiry being made.  If you haven’t heard from us within this time please email: stalls-wellscarnival@live.co.uk

You may be aware that Wells Carnival is organised by a team of volunteers.  The activities/events are either free of charge or to cover costs.  The committee rely on sponsorship/donations from individuals & businesses and run regular raffles to raise funds to cover the costs involved.  Any stallholder who donates a prize for the raffle (value of £5.00 or above) or makes an additional donation of £5.00 or above will have their stall name and website/email automatically added to our website for the coming year.  Raffle prizes will be collected by a member of the Carnival Committee or can be handed to the Carnival Merchandise stall on the day of the event.  Due to time constraints we would appreciate no vouchers unless they can be redeemed online.
