One of the main reasons any business owner is required to carry a license is so that revenue can be tracked for taxation purposes. Businesses that sell taxable goods or services also need a sales tax license or permit. Licenses and permits are also used to protect the public and are required in federally regulated industries (aviation, firearms, alcohol businesses, etc.). Other industry licenses signify specific expertise. For example, if you run an in-home hair styling business, you’ll need the same professional license that you’d need if you had a main street salon.
Sales Tax Permit - If you sell taxable goods or services (online or offline), you are required to collect state and local sales taxes from your customers. The State of Texas frequently checks vendors at vendor related events. This permit is mandatory for all MCF Vendors.
Health and Safety Permits Depending on your location and industry, you may need either a permit or an inspection from your local fire department, especially if your business requires the use of flammable materials or will likely involve the assembly of several people in one location, such as a child care business. See MCF requirements in Vendor Agreement.
The Midland County Horseshoe Arena is a TABC Licensed facility. All Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission laws apply. The In-house Management Company is a TABC Licensed company and provides all beverage services (including alcoholic beverages) in the venue and on the venue grounds. The carnival is pre-approved to sell cola/water products in their designated footprint only. Vendors may sell specialty beverage products, such as lemonade, frozen non-alcoholic drinks. Any specialty drinks sold must be pre-approved by the Midland County Fair.
Currently, we do not provide an Ice Station. Vendors are responsible for bringing in their own ice and products.
Trash receptacles are provided for the fair-goers convenience and your convenience. Trash is picked up periodically throughout the day. Dumpsters are also available for large quantity trash. Please secure any loose trash and dispose of frequently. The MCF works to keep the vendor area as clean as possible for a positive experience.
The Horseshoe Arena rents black tablecloths with a built-in cleaning fee of $20 per tablecloth. You are not required to rent them, and you are welcome to provide your own tablecloth for your booth.
