The Stromboli was invented in 1950 just outside of Philadelphia, PA. The traditional Stromboli features Italian specialty meats & cheeses, typically baked inside pizza dough. The Evansville area has created a unique version of the Stromboli, typically prepared in a sub styled roll and baked with Italian sausage, mozzarella and tomato sauce.

Food vendors will each be given the opportunity to sell their Stromboli at their individually managed tent spaces during the festival. For reasons of sampling, we will require each venue to offer a quarter($2), half($4) or a whole sandwich($8), encouraging attendees to try more vendors. All food vendors will need to provide proof of insurance and follow all state and county guidelines. Food will be prepared in their restaurants or food trucks and brought to the festival in approved containers to distribute and sell product during the hours of the festival. For immediate consideration or to sign up please send your name, business and contact number to Stromboli@EvansvilleEvents.com .


General vendors will also have an area to promote their brand/products in the community. Please email Stromboli@EvansvilleEvents.com for all consideration.
