Gordonsville’s Famous Fried Chicken Festival Coming Up in May!

Save the date! May 18th from 11am to 5pm at the Gordonsville Volunteer Fire Company Fair Grounds (301 East Baker St, Gordonsville VA 22942).

Did you know Gordonsville is famous for their friend chicken?? It had been served to passengers of trains stopping in town during the late 19th / 20th centuries by the local women. They would carry platters of the delicacy on their heads! Known at that time nationally, Gordonsville’s fried chicken, was given the town the nickname of “Chicken-leg Center of the Universe.”

The Town of Gordonsville has celebrated this special heritage each year with their Annual Fried Chicken Festival! There will be a fried chicken and pie contest, a wine garden, and crafts & artisan vendors.

This event is completely free to attend and will be held rain or shine!
