Look out chooks – the festival is back!

Auckland’s Fried Chicken Festival returns this year to a new venue –  Shed 10, Queen’s Wharf, on May 18-19!

After the sell out success at Parnell’s La Cigale market in 2018, a new, larger venue has been secured to accommodate the fried food’s revival and public demand.  In an effort to cut down wait times and make the crowds more manageable, the Fried Chicken Festival will be hosted over two days this year. Each day will have two sessions – a day and a night option – all serving the same good food, good vibes and good times.

Street food vendors and restaurants setting up pop-up kitchens will be there to serve a delicious range of fried chicken specialties!  Expect to see Temaki Truck, Judge Bao, LowBrow, Mexico NZ and The Coop – to name just a few.

Tickets are on sale from Eventfinda – but be quick because last year’s event sold old tastily quick, in just 19 minutes.
