The humble chicken nugget will make its glorious and heroic return to Welcome to Thornbury this March, as part of the fourth annual Chicken Nugget Festival at the inner-north food truck park. If you often rue the day in your adolescence that chicken nuggets became an unacceptable item to eat for dinner, then this is the judgment-free festival for you.

Welcome to Thornbury is assembling some of its favourite vendors to deliver one crunchy day dedicated to the nug. Expect a vast array of iterations too, including vegan, teriyaki or spiced-up butter chicken nuggets from the likes of Mr Burger, Maria Taqueria, Philly Cheese Steaks and more. For the little ones and big kids at heart, special Nuggie Boxes featuring three or six-piece nuggets, chips and a suitably themed toy are also on offer.

Of course, a wide range of dipping sauces to accompany and coat your nuggs will also be available on the day. And as always, Welcome to Thornbury will be serving up a slew of cocktails and beers to pair with your chicken feast.

Live music, a nugget eating competition lovingly dubbed 'Nuggetthon' and nugget merchandise round out the day's lineup. The festival kicks off at midday, bookings are available online — and kids and dogs are welcome.
