Come join us for the second annual Arizona Fried Chicken and Wings Festival in Downtown Phoenix. We will have over 10 local fried chicken businesses, featuring different varieties of fried chicken from Korean fried chicken to Nashville Hot fried chicken. Fried chicken is enjoyed throughout the world and every culture has their own twist on it. In South Korea, fried chicken is double fried and is enjoyed as Chimac. Chimac is a Korean word for the pairing of fried chicken and beer. The Pressroom will have cold beer and cocktails for you to enjoy this delicious combo of a satisfying, crispy fried chicken with a cold beer!
This global inspired food festival is about showcasing small businesses and their creativity! Follow our Facebook page to be kept up to date on who will be coming. Tag your photos with #azfriedchicken
