If you often rue the day in your adolescence that chicken nuggets became an unacceptable item to eat for dinner, well, Christmas has come early. This weekend, Welcome to Thornbury will take fried chicken back to junk food basics and throw another Chicken Nugget Festival.
First held in November last year, the permanent food truck park will dedicate another weekend to nuggets this July, with a vast selection ranging from traditional nuggets to spicy nuggets all the way through to a nugget burger, specially produced by Mr Burger. Welcome to Thornbury will also be serving up a suitable range of dipping sauces (from sweet chilli to szechuan) and a slew of cocktails and beers.
The full bite-sized fried chicken festival will be spread across two days, with lineup starring Belles Hot Chicken, Mr Burger, Hansby's Nuglife, The Real Jerk Food Truck, Jamm'd and Sparrow's Philly Cheesesteaks. Welcome to Thornbury has also announced a dessert nugget from Dip'd Gourmet Mini Donuts to complete your three-course nugget experience.
The festival kicks off at midday both days and runs til 10pm — and dogs are welcome.
