Vendors.png

Currently, the African American Day Parade, Inc. does not register vendors, therefore it is the vendors responsibility to have the appropriate licensure to sell food or other products. Also, vendors should not set up on the sidewalks along the parade route as to not impede on spectator traffic. AADP Vendor Opportunities Will be Available in the Future!
