When done with the application, hit the "Submit Application" button. After that, the page where you filled out the form should be blank.
After hitting the "Submit Application" button, IF the page is still there and doesn't go to the Paypal page, then there is likely an error in your application. You may see an error message at the bottom that says "Please fill in required fields" if you missed a required question; or you may not, if it's a different problem. Either way, scroll back up the form to find a required question that was not filled out or not filled out properly. (OFTEN it is because you have gone over the 600-character limit in your description.) Answer or fix, and then submit again.

You must have any food serving licenses that are required in accordance with State of Michigan law.
We are limiting the number of food vendors and types of food vendors, so filling out the application does not guarantee your spot. You will be refunded if we already have a food vendor selling the same or similar food items.
