ESSENCE Festival isn't the only "lituation" in NOLA.
Happy National Fried Chicken Day!
Calling all foodies willing to travel for a one-of-a-kind bite. We found a great reason for you to visit culinary fave New Orleans this fall. The second annual Fried Chicken Festival is on, and they’re serving up a lot to look forward to this year.
The free festival (which you can enter to win tickets to here) will be held in New Orleans September 23-24, and the two-day experience offers everything you hope it does, and from the looks of it, even more.
1. It’s Gonna Be Flavorful
Vendors and top chefs from over 35 restaurants across the U.S. will be in town cooking up crunchy batches of the classic Southern dish.
2. Entertainment Is Included
Good food and good music go hand-in-hand. There will be three stages showcasing music and cooking demos, with an audience attendance of more than 100,000 festivalgoers.
3. There Will Be A Sweet Spot
You can’t have fried chicken without dessert. We hear there will be a pop-up shop just for dessert. Yum!
