Festivals, temporary permit to sell liquor by the drink, procedure.

311.483. 1. The supervisor of liquor control may issue a temporary permit to persons holding licenses to sell intoxicating liquor by the drink at retail for consumption on the premises pursuant to the provisions of this chapter who furnish provisions and service for use at a festival as defined in chapter 316. An application for a permit under this section shall be made at least five business days prior to the festival. The temporary permit shall be effective for a period not to exceed one hundred sixty-eight consecutive hours, and shall authorize the service of alcoholic beverages at such festival during the hours at which alcoholic beverages may lawfully be sold or served upon premises licensed to sell alcoholic beverages for on-premises consumption. For every permit issued pursuant to the provisions of this section, the permittee shall pay to the director of revenue the sum of ten dollars for each calendar day, or fraction thereof, for which the permit is issued.

2. All provisions of the liquor control law and the ordinances, rules, and regulations of the incorporated city, or the unincorporated area of any county, in which is located the premises in which such function, occasion, or event is held shall extend to such premises and shall be in force and enforceable during all the time that the permittee, its agents, servants, employees, or stock are in such premises. This temporary permit shall allow the sale of intoxicating liquor in the original package.

3. To assure and control product quality, wholesalers may, but shall not be required to, give a retailer credit for intoxicating liquor delivered and invoiced under the permit number, but not used, if the wholesaler removes the product within seventy-two hours of the expiration of the permit issued pursuant to this section.

4. No provision of law or rule or regulation of the supervisor shall be interpreted as preventing any wholesaler, retailers, or distributor from providing customary storage, cooling, or dispensing equipment for use at a festival.
