Food Truck Park plans three-day fried chicken festival for November (Melbourne)

From Roadrunner Fried Chicken to Korean Fried Chicken Truck, there are plenty of mobile food vendors in Melbourne who dabble heavily in the art of fried chook. It’s about time some grease-loving geniuses rounded all those trucks together for one very big, super crispy festival. The folks behind Preston’s The Food Truck Park are those geniuses, and they have promised to bring together the city’s “cluckiest trucks” for their inaugural Big Chicken Festival.

For three days, from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th November, The Food Truck Park will transform into a playground for the deep-fried, opening up their gates for free-entry, all-ages, licenced finger lickin’ fun. Details on the event are very scarce at the moment, but there is an official Facebook event page set up so you can track truck updates as the festival approaches.

Gates will open at 5pm on Friday 18th November and stay open all night until 10pm. Saturday’s turn will last even longer, from 12pm-10pm, and Sunday times are 12pm-9pm.

Stay tuned for more information!
