Ascot Vale's permanent food truck park has played host to festivals dedicated to everything from espresso martinis to chicken parmas and halal snack packs. Now, it's dedicating Saturday, January 25, to two Aussie boxed favourites: chicken nuggets and goon.

Whether your memories of boxed wine include horrifying hangovers or fun rounds of goon of fortune, you'll agree it has long deserved its own day of celebration. As have chicken nuggets — the battered and golden bites could be considered perfection. And what a combo they make.

If you agree with all of the above, head along to The Ascot Lot on Saturday and dig into nuggets fried up by some of the city's favourite food truck parks. If you're vegan, vego or GF, fear not — there'll be options for you here, too. A pop-up goon bar will also be serving boxed wine, goon cocktails and a selection of craft beers and non-alcoholic cocktails.

There'll also be DJs, live tunes and fancy dress comps. As always, the food truck park is dog-friendly, so bring along your four-legged pals, too.

Entry to the festival is free, but you will need to pre-register over here.

Goon & Nugz Festival runs from 12–10pm.
