Food & Ice Cream Trucks

Are you the owner of a food truck or ice cream truck that’s looking to operate in Nassau County’s beautiful parks? With thousands of visitors, Nassau County’s parks offer an exciting opportunity for a range of mobile food and beverage concessions. The Department of Parks is now accepting applications for permits for the rights to operate a mobile food and beverage concession in our Parks locations.

While food and ice cream truck permit applications will continue to be accepted for the season on a rolling basis, we recommend submitting your application by Friday, March 26, 2021, so that you can have your permit ready to go for the start of the busy season. Applications can be completed and sent to or mailed/delivered to the attention of Victoria Kaso, Department of Parks – Food Truck Permits, Administration Building, Eisenhower Park (1899 Hempstead Turnpike), East Meadow, NY 11554.

The resulting permit will be valid through December 31 of this year. It is the intent of the Department to host and organize Special Food Truck Events, in addition to other County-sponsored events, to which annual Food and Ice Cream Truck Permittees will be invited to participate.


  • If you operate a food truck, please review and submit this application
  • Ice Cream Truck Permit Applications are now closed for 2021, as we have reached capacity. We will continue to accept Food Truck Permit Applications on a rolling basis.
