    Default Translate ENG to SP for public school event

    I am trying to translate some information for an upcoming event flyer at my local school. My conversational Spanish is not good at all.
    In American English we may look for a "concession stand" or "snack bar" to buy snacks, drinks and treats; but what is the best word usage in conversational Spanish?

    Any input is appreciated. I have a few more examples that I need help with, but I wanted to check here first.
    Thanks for your time,

    Hi gr33nd00r678 ,
    My guess would be "Puesto de comida al paso" which referes to food (mostly). Another option would be " Puesto de comida, bebida y golosinas".
    Also, "puesto" could be replaced by "quiosco".

    You might want to wait for a native spanish speaker to give his opinion before printing your flyers....

    As Nabyl said, "Puesto de comidas" it'll suit perfectly.. I prefer "puesto de comidas" before "puesto de comidas al paso" because is shorter and it already tell you what it is.
    I'm a native spanish speaker.

    Yes, in fairs there's usually an alltogether "puestos" that have everything from food to drinks, even desserts. There're no different "puestos" for food and another for drinks, there're all together.
    At least that's how it is in my country...

    By this you mean "snacks" or "drinks"?
    I think "bebito" means "little baby". As for "bocadillos", I'm pretty sure the word exist, but I dont think it would fit here..."Puesto de bocadillos" wouldn't sound natural or native.... What do you think matiasc?

    Yes, absolutely.. There are like snacks but made of food, like tiny pieces of food. Altough I never heard about "bebitos", it might be a way of calling the "bocadillos" of another country..
