what are our legal rights?

We have a licensed insured mobile food vending business. Last year a employee of a festival organizer got into a verbal dispute with a member of our business. She has banned our company from this eventwhich we had been involved in for the past 15 years. This year this same employee is working for another county and again we have been involved with this event for the past 16 years. Our application was excepted and payment was received 450.00. We received a letter from this employee denying us vendor space for this festival.
Can this person deny our company the ability to earn a income without any documentation?

Yes, they can deny you the right to work at the festival, assuming their supervisor/manager/etc. does not overrule them. There is no inherent right to be able to work at any given festival or location; whomever is in charge of the festival has the right to turn down anyone they want from it. So if this employee has the final word on the decision, she can deny you, though certainly her superiors (if any) can overrule her if they chose. The fact that it costs you income is irrelevant: one person or business (or governmental agency, etc.) does not need to take into account or care about the impact on you.
