8/19/21 - The Fried Chicken Festival for 2021 is CANCELLED due to the surge of Covid cases.
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, this year at a new location on Lakeshore Drive along the Lakefront.
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!
