Some things to consider before committing to bringing in a vendor for your event:
  • If electricity is required, then you want to make sure the vendor has a generator to provide their own power. You would need to check with your vendor on any costs associated with the use of a generator. Any costs associated with this are the renter's responsibility and not that of the District.
  • Placement of the item. If a vendor is bringing in an inflatable bounce house, those types of items are usually staked down for security. The District wants to make sure placement is correct to eliminate any problems of staking irrigation lines.
  • If the number of guests attending your event is significant, then you may want to consider renting port-a-potties and/or hand washing stations to accommodate the number of guests. The District will coordinate with the vendor on placement as the District does not allow vehicles on the turf area.
  • If the number of guests attending your event is significant, then the District may require security services.
Liability Insurance should be in the amount of $1,000,000 naming El Dorado Hills Community Services District as the certificate holder and as additional insured. Insurance may be arranged with your personal insurance company.
Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) Permit is required when selling alcoholic beverages. The applicant is required to notify and obtain the permit from the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department at (530) 621-5655. Once a permit is obtained, the District requires a copy before the event takes place.
Health Permit is required when selling food products at an event open to the general public or when bringing in a vendor for a facility rental/park picnic area rental. To obtain a permit, contact El Dorado County Health Department at (530) 621-5300 or visit their website.
