For all of you food lovers that enjoy friend chicken, you’ll love participating in Houston’s next Southern Fried Chicken Festival, which will be held at Levy Park (3801 Eastside st. Houston, TX 77098) on August 12th! So get ready to make your taste buds happy, and partake in some of the best fried chicken this country offers.

An Entire Festival Dedicated to Famous Southern Fried Chicken

Appearing for the first time ever in Houston, the Southern Fried Chicken Festival comes to town to celebrate Houston’s most ordered food: fried chicken. The event will present many chefs and culinary artists who will offer for tasting their own styles of fried chicken. Alongside the tasting, booths will include some of Houston’s favorite places to eat, food trucks, and plenty of fried chicken and sides to experience.

While you explore the festival, you’ll be able to put a vote in on which chef or culinary artist served you the best friend chicken dish. You’ll get to vote for the winner in the Best Fried Chicken Contest and the Most Creative Fried Chicken Dish. You can also sign up to participate in the Chicken Wing Eating Contest, which measures who can eat the most chicken wings in two minutes. Another contest you can participate in, which includes two divisions, one for children under 12 and the rest for adults, is the Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest, which measures who can spit the seeds the farthest distance. Live music and a Kid’s Zone, filled with games for children, will also be present to entertain guests during the festival.

It is also very important to know that this event will be benefiting the KielColonCancer.org, which is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. So now you can eat fried chicken and help others at the same time! 

The organizer of the Southern Fried Chicken Festival is Stack Marketing Group.
