Philadelphia Vendy Awards 2013: Ticket Giveaway

Philadelphia Vendy Awards

Attention foodies and food-lovers: The 3rd annual Philadelphia Vendy Awards want you to judge the best of Philly food trucks.

OK, they already have a judge panel. But you can pick your own favorite as you taste your way through each truck for the People’s Choice Award.

The Philadelphia Vendy awards are coming up on this Saturday, June 8th from 2-6 PM at Penn Treaty Park (1341 N Delaware Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125). Awards include Best Dessert, Messy yet Tasty and People’s Choice Awards.

What are the Vendy Awards?

The Vendy Awards celebrate the best food vendors & food trucks in the city with an intense cook off between chefs. The Awards benefits the Food Trust, our Philly nonprofit which tries to make healthy food available for all citizens – including events like the Night Market and local farmers’ markets.
