The City of Canning holds a number of free, family-friendly events throughout the year, and we want to invite you to help shape Canning to be a vibrant and active place to live.



Throughout the year, the City of Canning engages artists, entertainers, performers, community organisations, food trucks and stall holders etc with exciting opportunities to get involved in the City’s annual calendar of arts, cultural activities and events which can be found listed on our Major City Events page.

If you wish to participate then please fill in an online expression of interest form with your details, using the relevant link below. This will form part of our database.

Once an application is received, your information will be entered into our event season database. The City will get back to you and let you know what potential opportunities might be available.

Note: you need only apply once a year, unless any of your menu items, performance styles etc change and you wish to update us.

Food Trucks and Stall Holders Site Fees

Commencing during the 2022/23 Event season, the City of Canning will be introducing a $50+GST site fee to food truck/food vendors and stall holders participating in our events. The only exception to this will be our Mid Week Eats Event Series which operates a different site fee structure. However, once paid the fee will secure your place at the event.

The fee requirement will operate in addition to the City’s Simplified Trading Partnership Program (STPP) which provides food trucks/vendors a permit to trade at approved events in the City of Caning, Gosnells and Town of Victoria Park. Please find details of this below


If you are planning on attending one of our organised events to sample and/or sell food you will need to obtain a permit authorising your temporary or mobile stall to do so. This is called an Simplified Trading Partnership Permit (STPP).

The Simplified Trading Partnership Permit (STPP) is for a registered food businesses who want to trade at approved event. What is extremely beneficial about the STPP is that it actually represents a partnership between the City of Canning, City of Gosnells and Town of Victoria Park.

So once it's granted, the STPP will allow you to participate in any approved event in one of those three local government areas. An STPP is not the same as a Food Business Registration though. Read more here.

To apply for your STPP you can do so  online - all applications or notifications can be lodged through our portal called 'My Canning', see link below.

How it works:

👉The City Events Team will invite you to serve at an event, and then ask you to complete either:

    ✔️Temporary Food Stall/Mobile Food Vendor Simplified Trading Permit Application  (new permit required)
    ✔️Simplified Trading Partnership Permit Notification  (current permit holders who just need to notify the applicable Council they intend to operate at an event)

👉Before completing the online forms, you will be required to sign up for a My Canning account. Click here for instructions on how to do so.

👉You can track your permit online through your account



👉Both new applications and notifications (if you currently have a current STPP permit) require 14 days to process. So make sure you give yourself enough time to avoid any disappointment nearer the event date.

For further information, please contact the City Events Team on 1300 422 664 or send an email.
