Chicken & Beer Fest in August



The first Memphis Chicken & Beer Festival is happening at the Liberty Bowl August 11th.

"Every restaurant has a chicken dish," says Caroline Hall of iHeartMedia, the host of the Chicken & Beer Fest.

She envisions an array of food for the festival — fried rice, pizza, chicken wings for days.

Some of the vendors that have signed up include Mr. P's (wings); Oshi (chicken sushi); Dirty Crow (Messy Crow chicken sandwich); Smackers, The Grille, Look at that Butt BBQ, Hooters, Southern Hands, Laura's Kitchen, Grecian Gourmet, Wing Stop, and All-Star Wings. Cupcake Cutie has promised a chicken-flavored cupcake.

She says the idea came about when the company wanted to do a beer event with a Memphis touch.

The company has held Wine on the River, Sister Strut, Cars & Cigars. They wanted something like that, adult fun.

Speaking of adult fun, Hall says that Chicken & Beer Fest will be like adult recess with hula hoops, inflatables, jousting, and a photo booth.

Tickets are $40, benefitting the Dorothy Day House.
