Permit Application, Fees & Instructions & Guidelines
Temporary Food Permits are required of anyone serving food in the City of Beaumont whether the food is given away or sold and when the operation is not conducted from a licensed food service establishment. An application is required to be filled out and and submitted no less than one week prior to the beginning of the event for approval. A food handler certification is required to be obtained, before the temporary permit inspection date.

Each subsequent day will be charged $15 (with a max of 14 days), 6 or more booths require a Special Event Permit which is $220 per day of operation of the event. Permits must be applied for and purchased at least 30 days in advance of the Special Event.
A 50% discount is given when the organization is non-profit and youth or elderly oriented.
