Food Vendors Needed for Uncle Sam Jam

The event is from 3 to 10:30 p.m. at Oak Lake Park, First and Charleston Streets. The rain date will be Wednesday, July 5 at the same location.

"This is by far the largest free event that the City of Lincoln hosts every year," said Jerry Shorney, Assistant Director of Park Operations. "It's a wonderful opportunity for vendors to interact with the public, and for Lincoln families to support local businesses, all while enjoying a fun Independence Day celebration."

To apply, contact Ann Kontor, Parks and Recreation, at or 402-441-7847, extension "0". The fee to apply is $100, and the application deadline is 4:30 p.m., Friday, March 10. Space is limited to 10 vendors.

Vendors will be notified of selection results Friday, March 31. The application fee will be refunded to vendors not selected for the event. Applicants are required to submit a complete list of merchandise to minimize duplication of food offerings. The selected vendors will be required to complete the application process by providing insurance information and details on advertising to be displayed during the event.

For more information on Parks and Recreation, visit More information on the Uncle Sam Jam will be released in late spring.
