The 2017 Fried Chicken Festival presented by Raising Cane’s will take place over two days. It will move to Woldenberg Park, where the hungry hoards have more room to spread out. And the festival will have more vendors, including restaurants from Memphis, Charleston and New York state. (See below for the complete menus of all the vendors)

As organizers watched Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, they decided to add a larger charitable component to Fried Chicken Festival. Then, as Hurricane Irma organized, they decided to direct their efforts more broadly across the Gulf Coast, in case other states end up needing help.

A Pay-It-Forward tent will be set up, where festival goers can learn about relief organizations on the ground and make donations. The festival will donate 20 percent of drink proceeds to hurricane relief.

The Fried Chicken Festival also includes a kids area, a stage with food demonstrations, a Football Fan Zone with televisions tuned to the games and a full music line-up that includes Motel Radio, Naughty Professor and Big Freedia. (See our earlier story for the full music schedule)

The festival is free and starts each day at 11 a.m. and runs until 9 p.m. on Saturday and 8 p.m. on Sunday. A VIP Lounge is available for $75 a day. For more details see
