Governor’s Island, NY — We were first to report the winners for the 2012 NY Vendys at Governor’s Island, and for the 10th anniversary of the Awards, The Vendys return to Governor’s Island on September 13th. Tickets are now on sale via this link, so purchase yours soon before they sell out. Partnering with Brooklyn Brewery and Rachel Ray, this year’s Vendys will feature a host of new and exciting food vendors!
Last year, the Vendy Awards drew a crowd of more than 2,000 people to Brooklyn’s Industry City to determine New York’s top street chef in the grill-to-grill cook-off. This year, New York’s best street chefs will compete for the coveted Vendy Cup, along with Rookie of the Year, Best Dessert, Best Market Vendor, and Best of New Jersey, which will all be judged by a panel of celebrity judges. The popular People’s Choice Award will be determined by the crowd and given to the favorite. The Heroic Vendor of the Year will also be honored, and a new category, in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Vendy Awards, will be announced in the coming months.
