The Peterborough Folk Festival is proud to offer festival goers a variety of fabulous local food to enjoy while they are in the park. 

Electricity Note: We've got the power!

Zero Waste Initiatives:

Like many other festivals, the PFF has implemented a zero-waste policy. 2007 saw the introduction of several programs designed to lessen the environmental impacts of our “one last sweet summer weekend.” Now, we’re doing whatever we can to make it even sweeter.

Our green initiatives take enormous amounts of volunteer power. Our “green team” takes care of everything from sorting garbage and recyclables to toting wagonloads of dishes to the nearest industrial dishwasher for sterilization between uses. We’re formalizing our request for our food vendors to help us tread more lightly.
  • The PFF will once again provide unlimited purified/spring water to guests. As of the 2008 festival, commercially-bottled water in individually-sized bottles is not to be sold at the Peterborough Folk Festival. We strongly encourage (and really hope for) the vending of other delicious beverages.
  • Polystyrene (“Styrofoam”) is no longer recyclable in the City of Peterborough. We ask that vendors use the reusable plates and cutlery provided by the PFF. In the event that these are not available (due to delays in washing etc) vendors may use their own plates but they must be biodegradable or reusable.
  • Please email pfffood@gmail.com with questions about our zero-waste policy.


The vendor shall meet all conditions stipulated in this document. Failure to comply may result in immediate dismissal and rejection from vending at the Peterborough Folk Festival in future years. The Peterborough Folk Festival Inc. reserves the right to add conditions necessary to the safe operation and preservation of the natural environment of the site. The vendor releases the Peterborough Folk Festival Inc. from any and all liability related to participation in this event. Any change to this contract shall be in writing and initialed by vendor and an authorized representative of the Peterborough Folk Festival Inc. 
This event closed for registrations on 8/18/2019
