New Orleans Fried Chicken Festival

Due to Covid 19, there will not be a National Fried Chicken Festival for 2020.   

As soon as we know the dates for 2021, this page will be updated.



We all know that New Orleans is no stranger to festivals. We boast some of the best food and music festivals in the world. However, one classic Southern dish has remained in the background of all of these festivals. But no longer...The National Fried Chicken (FREE) Festival presented by Raising Cane's takes place at Woldenberg Park along the New Orleans Downtown Riverfront.

Celebrate this Southern favorite with food, live entertainment, and festivities, including a Chicken Wing Eating contest and a Best Fried Chicken contest. 35 restaurants will be slinging their chicken and there will be live music on two stages. Just like all New Orleans festivals, this is wildy popular. Don't miss out on the fun!
