The State of Arizona requires a Transaction Privilege Tax Application short form for special event vendors who do not have a regular AZ TPT license. It's only $12, but it must be completed prior to acceptance as a vendor at the Best of the West Festival. Here's a link to the form.
Food vendors are subject to State of Arizona and Mohave County Health codes requirements. You will need a permit to operate issued by Mohave County Health Department. If you don't have one, you can apply for a Temporary Food Service Application with the County Health Department.
