The Hunt for the Best Southern Fried Chicken
Who has the most delicious fried chicken in Charleston? You’ll have to wait until The Southern Fried Chicken Challenge on September 8 to find out.
But, you can purchase your early (yard)bird tickets now.
Here’s what you need to know:
Purchase tickets by June 1 to get the best deal.
VIP tickets are $55.
Buy 3 general admission tickets for $10 and get the fourth ticket free (use promo code FAMILY).
After June 1, ticket prices jump up to $65 for VIP tickets. General admission tickets remain $10, but you don’t get that finger-lickin’ good deal.
What’s new this year?
Culinary Students from Charleston School District will also compete.
Anything else on the menu?
A portion of the proceeds from the Southern Fried Chicken Festival will be donated to the Charleston Animal Society, MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital, Charleston County School District Career & Technology Education programs, and YEScarolina (Youth Entrepreneurship South Carolina).
The fried chicken madness takes place on Saturday, Sept. 8 from noon to 6 p.m. at North Charleston’s Riverfront Park.
