Organizers of the 2016 Vendy Awards in Philadelphia say the food-truck extravaganza, set for Oct. 2 at the Fillmore, has been canceled.
"We are sorry to announce that we are cancelling the 2016 Vendy Awards in Philadelphia which was scheduled for this coming Sunday, October 2, 2016," wrote the Street Vendor Project. "With the New York Vendys having just taken place, we were unable dedicate sufficient resources to properly execute this event. All purchased tickets will be refunded in the coming week. We appreciate your time, effort and enthusiasm and we sincerely apologize for our shortcomings."
This would have been the sixth annual Vendys, which benefits the Street Vendor Project, the Food Trust, and the Philly Mobile Food Association.
