Fried chicken lovers rejoice! Our 'real clucking good' Fried Chicken Festival is back!
Make your way to Auckland’s iconic waterfront venue, Shed 10, where it will be packed with over a dozen vendors serving what they do best, mouthwatering fried chicken! What’s best, you can travel the world with your taste buds as each vendor will be putting their own international twist on their menu inspired by their home roots!
Street food favourites include:
