Vendor Booth Recommendations - Lafayette Art & Wine Festival

IMPORTANT INFORMATION for Beer & Wine Booth Hosts

Beer/Wine/Ticket Booths: ABC Training

All shift leaders must attend the in-person ABC Training hosted by The Lafayette Chamber and the Lafayette Police Department despite having attended in year's past. The ABC training is updated yearly to accommodate new laws and festival operations. Your organization must also guarantee 3 people in the booth at all times. Details of the ABC training will be sent via e-mail; you will be asked to schedule your attendance on Sign-up Genius. The in-person ABC training is mandatory, and a trained representative is required to be in the booth at all times during Festival hours (Sat. 10-7 and Sun. 10-6). 


Beer & Wine Booths: RBS Training

*Effective July 1st, 2022, the state requires RBS training per Assembly Bill 1221 and Assembly Bill 82. Meaning, that on-premises alcoholic beverage servers and their managers must successfully complete an ABC-approved RBS training program and exam.  

The Chamber will provide 2 training codes for your organization’s representatives. Details of how to complete this process will be sent via email. Having more than one person with a CA Server ID in your booth not only supports your team working your booth but also supports and protects our one liquor license that covers our entire festival! *It only takes one violation to shut our entire festival down. The absolute goal is to have trained individuals who know the policies of the ABC license so they can run a lawful and safe booth!

Lafayette Art and Wine Festival: 3 Strikes Policy

The Lafayette Chamber is fully responsible for the alcoholic beverage concession and conduct at the Lafayette Art and Wine Festival. The ABC license is filed jointly with the City of Lafayette and the Lafayette Chamber. Everyone operates under the same license. One violation can shut down the entire festival.

The ABC office can suspend or revoke our license for any of the violations listed below. Half the proceeds of this event come from selling glasses and drink tickets. We count on everyone working together and using good common sense.

NEW THIS YEAR: For a secure and compliant festival experience, we are implementing a strict 3-strikes policy. If a Beer or Wine Booth host and their volunteers engage in any misconduct that could endanger the Art & Wine Festival's ABC license, they will face immediate closure without refunds and will be barred from participation in future festivals.
