About the application

The Virginia Highland District was created to design, develop, and implement strategies of community engagement and economic development. We have had great success with community events in the past, including our Porchfest that brought the neighborhood alive with tens of thousands of attendees. We have also created a summer series that includes Food Truck Fridays, along with Barre in the Park and a weekly Farmers Market.
Please check us out or on Instagram and Facebook as @virginiahighlanddistrict.
On Saturday, December 9, Virginia Ave & Lanier Blvd will be closed to create the Winterfest Artist Market from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm -- a holiday gift fair with a German street market theme, including festive lights, music and drinks. It is free for the public to attend the market. There will also be a Tour of Lights Block Party the night before, 2-mile Jingle Jog, and holiday parade to complete the weekend.  
We will be choosing a total of 6 trucks and 3 small carts (sweet and savory) that make little to no noise with the capacity to serve up to 200 orders. Please do not apply if you do not fit this description.
