Event Details

The 2011 Vendy Awards

The Vendys 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 September 25th from 12:30pm to 5pm, and all the food you can eat.

Children under age 8 get in free.  

Each ticket is also a tax deductible donation.

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

Street Vendor Project

There are more than 10,000 street vendors in New York City -- hot dog vendors, flower vendors, book vendors, shoe shiners, street artists, and many others. They are small businesspeople struggling to make ends meet. Most are recent immigrants and people of color. They work long hours under harsh conditions, asking for nothing more than a chance to sell their goods and services on the public sidewalk.

Yet, in recent years, vendors have been victims of New York’s aggressive “quality of life” crackdown. They have been denied access to vending licenses. They have been swept from the streets by powerful business groups. They have been unjustly harassed, and their property has been illegally seized.

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. 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.
