Charge $15 a sandwich and then don't make any, you will be way ahead of the game.

And if you do sell a bunch of sandwiches at $15 each, then you need to find out where those people will be the next weekend and everyone after that

I paid 3k in DC for a two day event, and it was well worth it. If you know the event you should know the value. I am doing a one and half day event this weekend and paid 750. A three day event in sept I paid 1750. I did one three weeks ago that I paid 250. Just showing that prices are all over the place. Do your homework locally to see if it is worth it. Don't take my word or anyone elses thousands of miles away whether its a good deal or not.

after rethinking it were going to pass for couple of reasons.

1. will only be able to do non bbq items even though the other bbq guy is doing sammies and ribs
2.no electricty at all so would have to run gen. from friday night-sunday afternoon .8 tenths of gallon per hour. to keep refers and freezer going.

talked to some people that vended last 2 years that are not going back due to high rent for amount of people attending and onsite hotel dinning room serving plate lunches . cheap just going with my gut on this one will go out and check it out for kicks...
