What is a Registered Vendor?
"Registered vendor" means that a business has provided an application and a current certificate of insurance, paid a fee and completed a criminal background affidavit. Being a Registered Vendor does not imply Broward County’s recommendation. If a party or other special event is planned at a park or park shelter, patrons may choose their own caterers and vendors as long as the vendors have completed the application process and paid the vendor fee to become a Registered Vendor.
If you prefer to use a caterer or business that is not on the Registered Vendors List, have them email ParksVendors@Broward.org.

Due to ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19, we are extending applications of vendors that were registered as of March 2020 by eight months to account for the time that shelter reservations were closed/cancelled. At this time, shelter reservations are reduced to 50 percent capacity (including vendor representatives).
The following are not currently allowed to return: bounce houses, mechanical rides, face painters, characters, and games.
How to Apply
Walk-in vendor registration is NOT accepted without an appointment.
All new and renewing vendors are required to pay a $150 vendor fee with the submittal of a new vendor application, updated criminal background screening affidavit and certificate of insurance. We accepts checks made payable to Broward County Board of County Commissioners and credit cards by phone only.

The booking of events is the responsibility of the vendor. Broward County Parks cannot ensure that the registered vendor will get additional business. If you would like to reach out to park guests who have made facility reservations, email ParksVendors@Broward.org.
