Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.

You don't need a mobile vendor's license here since there is no kiosk or cart.

You do need a sales tax permit here are the items you need here including the permit.You will also need an EIN number for your business from IRS.

Reference..

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight. Now if you go into SXSW gates somewhere they may have their own restrictions and fees, if you are on the public streets you are fine.
