THE BIGGEST STREET FOOD COMPETITION IN THE WORLD IS COMING TO AMERICA
In 2023, the biggest street food competition in the world arrives in America with the inaugural USA Street Food Awards. Founded in 2010 by famed British journalist and broadcaster Richard Johnson, the Awards were conceived of to showcase the best that's out there. The USA Street Food Awards will be an epic food fight in one of America's premier food truck cities: Los Angeles. And we'll find out our first American champion.
These epic food fights draw the region’s finest, famed food trucks and pop-up street food artists to compete for the holy grail:, bragging rights and a custom electric Food Fleet Food Truck!
(yeah, we said that – a free food truck!).
So click below, for the deets (dates, time and location) so you can come hang with us, eat some tasty food and make your vote count! We'll be slinging food in every heat location, with live music, drink (natch) and a sprinkling of celebrity chefs. Best part? Not the free food truck part for the winner. All proceeds benefit The Wave Foundation. Not only do we believe in good food – we believe in doing good too.
