Event Details

THE 10TH ANNUAL VENDY AWARDS

www.vendyawards.streetvendor.org

We are excited to return to Governors Island on September 13th to celebrate 10 years of street food with the 10th Annual Vendy Awards! The Vendys are:

  • NYC’s premier street food showcase, and an intense cook-off between the best sidewalk chefs, that has become one of the city’s most beloved and widely anticipated food events!
  • A festival of respect and gratitude for all vendors and everything they provide us–from your morning coffee (half-and-half, two sugars) to the $2 umbrella when you get caught in the thunderstorm.
  • A fundraiser for the Street Vendor Project, a membership-based non-profit organization that stands up for vendors’ rights.

WE EXPECT TO SELL OUT IN ADVANCE. BUY YOUR TICKET IN ADVANCE!

Each ticket is also a tax-deductible donation

WHERE & WHEN? 

Saturday, September 13th, 2014 from 12:30pm to 5pm at Governors Island. For directions and event location information, please visit our website

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE AWARDS?

Finalists arrive with their carts/trucks and prepare their best eats for Vendy attendees and judges. Brooklyn Brewery Beer, Santa Cristina wines, and non-alcoholic beverages will be plentiful, with tables and chairs for the food-weary. There will be live music, performances, and a raffle, culminating in a short ceremony naming the award winners!

Please wear comfortable shoes. Each year we work to shorten the lines, but standing in line is part of the Vendy – and street food – experience. We can’t say if any marriages have come out of people waiting in line together, but we do know that many friendships have been born as people wait for their chance to sample the finalists’ food.

WHICH AWARDS WILL BE GIVEN OUT THIS YEAR?

One finalist will be awarded the Vendy Cup and title of Vendy Award winner. Additional awards will be given to the People’s Choice Award winner, the Dessert Category winner,  Rookie Vendor of the Year, Market Vendor Award & the Best of New Jersey Award. 

HOW ARE THE FINALISTS SELECTED?

Simple enough. We will take public nominations until mid-June to determine the lucky vendors that are invited to compete against each other for street food glory.

HOW IS THE WINNER SELECTED?

At the event, we’ll have a team of distinguished judges score the finalists and decide who get the coveted "Vendy Cup". Attendees choose our People’s Choice Award winner, as well as winners in the other categories.

CAN I BUY MY TICKET AT THE DOOR?

For the past few years we have sold out before the event and there were no tickets available at the door. The event has grown every year and, in order to keep the lines manageable, we sell a limited amount of tickets ensuring a great experience for everyone involved. We strongly recommend buying your tickets early. We won’t run out of food, but we will run out of tickets.

ARE KIDS WELCOME? DO THEY NEED A TICKET?

We love kids and kids love street food. Children 8 and under don’t need a ticket. Otherwise, they do.

Organizer

Vendy Awards

The Vendy Awards is a competition that identifies and celebrates street food vendors, and a fundraiser to support the Street Vendor Project of the Urban Justice Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Street Vendor Project is a membership-based project with more than 1300 active vendor members who are working together to create a vendors’ movement for permanent change. We reach out to vendors in the streets and storage garages and teach them about their legal rights and responsibilities.  We publish reports and file lawsuits to raise public awareness about vendors and the enormous contribution they make to our city.
