Chamizal National Memorial Providing New Opportunity for Alcohol Vendor

Chamizal National Memorial has announced a business opportunity to provide alcohol vendor services at regularly scheduled events that take place at the Memorial during the 2012-2013 season. The regularly scheduled events typically take place each Sunday mid-June through August.

A Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) is required to provide alcohol services at Chamizal National Memorial. The application processing fee is non-refundable $50.00 (check, money order, or cashiers check made payable to the National Park Service) which must accompany each application. Upon vendor selection there is an additional fee of $250.00 for the issuance of the two-year CUA. Commercial Use Authorization request packages will be available from April 2, 2012 and must be returned no later than April 17, 2012.
