Event Details

Notice! Online ticketing closes tonight!  Only a limited number of tickets will be available at the door for $100 each. 

The 2008 Vendy Awards

The Vendies are:

  • An intense cook-off between the best sidewalks chefs in the city.
  • 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.

Each ticket gets you admission to the cook-off and awards ceremony on October 18th from 3pm to 7pm, all the food you can eat and all the beer and wine you can drink.

Children under age 8 get in free.  

No physical tickets will be sent -- please just bring your payment confirmation to the event.

Each ticket is also a tax deductible donation.

Street Vendor Project, The Urban Justice Center

The Street Vendor Project works to correct the social and economic injustice faced by these hardworking entrepreneurs. Reaching out to vendors on the street, we hold clinics to educate vendors about their legal rights. Working to support a local vendors’ rights movement, we organize vendors to participate in the political process that determines their fate. Finally, we engage in systemic advocacy to help policy makers and the public understand the important role street vendors play in the life of our city.

The Urban Justice Center serves low-income and marginalized New Yorkers through a unique combination of direct legal services, systemic advocacy, community education, and political organizing. For information about the UJC's work, visit The Street Vendor Project, one of the UJC's programs, maintains this website to provide additional resources and information specifically about and for our vending community.
