The 4th Annual Philadelphia Vendy Awards

Media Title

The Vendy Awards, a no-holds-barred foodtruck competition, started in NYC nearly a decade ago. Spilling over to Philly in 2011, this intense clash of the street-chef titans has since been one of the summer’s most eagerly anticipated events. The culinary contest not only celebrates the new and exciting dishes available all over the city, but also acknowledges the hard work and dedication of food truck vendors across the region. Competitors are each vying for bragging rights, alongside the coveted Vendy Cup, and victories in certain categories, like Rookie of the Year, the People’s Taste Awards, Best Dessert, and the always-fun “Messy Yet Tasty” Award. This year’s tournament features a total of 14 local established and newbie trucks—the Cow and Curd, Pie Stand, Cheese E. Wagon and Milk + Sugar among them—each of which challenge the way we think of meals on wheels.

In addition to giving these culinary artists a chance to strut their stuff, the Philadelphia Vendy Awards are a non-profit fundraiser for the Food Trust, a local organization dedicated to establishing and maintaining a healthy, local food economy. Many of the trucks utilize only locally-grown produce and meats, enabling their resulting bites to truly be a taste of the area. The price of admission includes all you can eat from the competing vendors, all you can drink, live music, and after-party drink specials from nearby Fette Sau and Frankford Hall. // KENNEDY ALLEN
