Tickets to Auckland's first fried chicken celebration in 2018 sold out in 19 minutes. The event at Parnell's La Cigale French market was so crammed that attendees had to wait over an hour for a sniff of fried poultry. In 2019 it moved to Queens Wharf venue Shed 10 where it welcomed chicken lovers by the hundreds.

This year, the Auckland Fried Chicken Festival is set to make its triumphant return to the waterfront on Saturday, August 21. Clucking great news.

Once again, in an effort to cut down wait times and make crowds more manageable, the festival will be hosted across two sessions — lunch from 12–4pm and dinner from 5–9pm. Auckland's finest food trucks and chicken restaurants will bring their best chicken-inspired menus to the upper and lower decks of Shed 10. Some will specialise in fried chicken while others will change up their menus to incorporate the theme of the night.

The festival will have live entertainment and activities to keep you busy between meals — previous events have featured everything from axe throwing to crazy golf — and a craft beer and wine bar will help you wash down all that fried bird.

Tickets to Auckland Fried Chicken Festival go on sale via Eventfinda NZ on Sunday, May 23 at 10am. Stay tuned for the full vendor lineup.
