On Saturday, June 14, 2014, The 4th Annual Philadelphia Vendy Awards will return to Penn Treaty Park, where the local best of the best trucks will fiercely compete for the most highly coveted honor in the history of the food truck culinary world: The Vendy Cup.
The Vendy Awards, an annual, highly-anticipated competition is organized by The Street Vendor Project at the Urban Justice Center. The membership-based organization of more than 1,300 members celebrates a banner 10th year determining New York City’s top street chef for nine years, becoming one of the most beloved and widely anticipated food events in New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans and Philadelphia. In Philadelphia, the Vendy Awards will serve as a fundraiser for The Food Trust, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit organization that strives to make healthy food available to all.
Advance tickets are $55 and includes day-of people’s choice judging rights, unlimited trips to each truck for their delectable offerings, an endless flow of Sam Adams craft beer and Angry Orchards Ciders, as well as an unforgettable day in Philadelphia food history (Philly is big on historical moments). Of pertinent note, this year an all-woman panel of judges and a female emcee were chosen to help decide the destinies of the participating trucks in the categories of Rookie, Dessert and ultimately, Vendy.
The full bios of each finalist as well as the descriptions of the food can be found here on the Vendy website. Follow the Vendy Awards on Twitter (@VendyAwards) Facebook, and Instagram for the latest news and announcements!
