The following must be named on the COI (excluding Workers’ Compensation): Museum of Discovery and Science, 401 SW 2nd Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312. All insurance policies must include a “Waiver of Subrogation” endorsement. A copy of this policy must be submitted to MODS with your contract.


Food trucks will be required to adhere to the following regulations. During the event, each food truck will be monitored for compliance. 

  • Serving containers, paper napkins and cups must be compostable.
  • Cups must be recyclable or compostable.
  • Focus on finger foods so cutlery is not needed. If you do use cutlery, it must be eco-friendly.
  • Avoid condiments in packets and use squeezable or pump bottles.
  • Food trucks must use non-toxic cleansers.
  • We strongly encourage sourcing all supplies and food LOCALLY.
  • Finally, please break down cardboard boxes before depositing them into recycling receptacles on site.

In order to keep the Visit Lauderdale Science Festival brand consistent and the festival experience seamless, MODS will design and provide front signage for tents only. Food trucks may bring additional signage for the back of the booth.
