Vendys 2010

Nominations close Saturday July 17 for you to nominate your favorite street vendor for the 2010 Vendy Awards.  As a thank you for participating, they are giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky nominator.  Nominate your favorite vendor here.

The 2010 Vendy Awards will be held Saturday, Sept 25th on Governors Island from 12-5pm.  If you haven’t been there before, Governors Island will provide a gorgeous setting for this wonderful event.  We attended last year’s Vendys and had a fantastic time.  As of today, you can still buy tickets here, but if you wait too long, it will be out (as it is every year).

New York Street Food is proud to be a Silver Level sponsor of the 2010 Vendy Awards.

As a reminder, the Vendys are put on by the Street Vendor Project of the Urban Justice Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a voice for the thousands of people who sell food and merchandise on the streets of our city.
