FAQS

What are the Vendy Awards?

The Vendys are a yearly street food cook-off that, since 2005, has determined the best street chef in NYC. It has become one of the greatest food events in New York. Mario Batali called the Vendys “the Oscars of food for the real New York.” Last year was our first time in NOLA and now we're back!

What’s the point?

The point is to celebrate the street vendors who serve us every day, and who bring so much culinary and cultural life to our streets and public spaces. Street vendors are passionate, hard-working, small business owners that bring vibrancy and deliciousness to New Orleans.

How does it work?

Simple enough. We took public nominations to determine the lucky 9 vendors that were invited to compete against each other for street food glory. At the event, we’ll have a team of distinguished judges score the finalists and decide who get the coveted "Vendy Cup". The general public can also buy tickets to the event, to enjoy the vendors’ food, as well as vote for their own "People's Choice" winner.

How will you avoid a street food catastrophe?

Last year's event was so successful so we are making sure our vendors and drink providers have been fully briefed on the size of the event so that everyone can get the food and drinks they signed up for. Because vendors can only work so fast, you will have to stand in line, but that is where you make new friends. One couple even got married after meeting in line at the Vendys! Results may vary, however. We will also be limiting the number of people we can let into the event to make sure lines are managable.

Can I buy my ticket later or at the door?

Maybe, but tickets are going fast. And, if there are still any available, same-day tickets will go for $5 more than they are online. Best buy yours now to be safe and save some money. Having an online ticket purchase will also help get you through the door quicker.

Are kids welcome? Do they need tickets?

We love kids and kids love street food. Children 6 and under don’t need a ticket. Otherwise, they do.

I’m a member of the press. How do I get a press pass or arrange to interview the organizers or individual vendors?

Do not call, but email us at vendyawards@gmail.com. Press Pass requests must be received by March 28th. Press passes are limited.

My company would like to sponsor the Vendy Awards New Orleans. What should I do?

Drop us a line at vendyawards@gmail.com or give us a call at (202) 213.2250.

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.
