Wednesday, June 26, 2019

CLEVELAND – Today, the City of Cleveland Board of Control approved the vendors who are authorized to operate during the 2019 All-Star Game week. Information is provided below outlining the vendors, vendor zones, badging and regulations for approved vendor operators during the All-Star Game week from July 5th – 9th.

Note: Press Conference will be held on July 2nd to announce the official start of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game week.

In addition to the security and transportation plans developed through a partnership of local, state and federal law enforcement and public safety agencies the City of Cleveland has developed rules for specific operation of vendors during the All-Star Game week.

Vendor Regulations

These rules and regulations were developed for the safety and protection of those attending the All-Star Game events and for the authorized vendors.

Due to restricted access to certain areas of the City based on federally mandated guidance and an expected increase in pedestrian and vehicular traffic during the All-Star Events, the following Regulations are in effect under the authority of Section 697A.04, Codified Ordinances of Cleveland, Ohio, 1976 (“C.O.”) and apply to all vendors in the Central Business District during the effective period of July 5th – 9th.

Vendor Regulations: Find the full set of vendor regulations and guidelines here.

Vendor Badging

Only vendors with “Special Event” credentials will be authorized to vend in the designated vending zones.
