Temporary business licenses are issued in Richland for temporary activities such as trade shows, promotional events, itinerant merchants and solicitors.
A vendor list must be included for all applicable events. Applications must be received by Customer Service at least 7 business days prior to the event start date.
Special Event vendors participating in a private or city-organized special event must possess a valid business license. Unlicensed vendors shall obtain a temporary business license, at the rate of $10.00, that expires at the conclusion of the special event. In the alternative, upon application, the city may issue to the host of the private or city-organized special event a master temporary business license for the event covering all vendor participants. In calculating fees for the master temporary business license, the host shall pay $10.00 per vendor.
