The Los Angeles Auto Show® is delighted to host a new taste bud revolution when the USA Street Food Awards makes its debut in North America. The culinary event will celebrate the finest street food vendors in Los Angeles – the city that helped kick-start the food truck revolution!
The awards are judged by a panel of culinary experts, with each dish evaluated on taste, creativity, and presentation. The participants are invited to share the story behind their culinary journey, celebrating the flavors, cultural significance and heritage behind each dish. Visitors are able to eat, drink and vote their way around the competing food vendors. Visitors purchasing tickets to the LA Auto Show on November 18-19 will automatically be entitled to enter the Street Food Awards, taking place on the campus of the LA Convention Center. People wishing to only attend the Street Food Awards are able to purchase separate $5 tickets.
Visitors to the Street Food Awards will be able to purchase the food items being judged from each vendor. Sample packs can also be purchased for $20. The packs entitle attendees to obtain samples from three vendors and any number of sample packs can be purchased. A percentage of each sample pack purchase will go towards two organizations being supported by the Street Food Awards. These include Wave Foundation (thewavenw.org), which supports sustainable, equitable and resilient food systems, and Streets International (streetsinternational.org), a social enterprise providing culinary training to at-risk youth.
