Auckland's getting a fried chicken festival!


Rumours of a fried chicken festival have been flying around since last year and now we have something CONFIRMED.

The Auckland Food Truck Collective and La Cigale are set to host the city's first ever fried chicken gathering!

Auckland Fried Chicken Festival will take place at the Parnell French market on 12 July with some of Auckland's finest food trucks coming together with chicken-inspired menus.

Some will specialise in fried chicken while others will change up their menus to incorporate the theme of the night.

Vendors going include Nashville-style chicken truck Peach's Hot Chicken, hand-rolled sushi stall Temaki Truck, European chippery Double Dutch Fries, contemporary Chinese eatery Judge Bao, Bacon Bros and plant-based burger joint Wise Boys Burgers.

There will also be a licensed bar, indoor seating, heaters and live music.

Sounds IDEAL!
