Fried Chicken Festival is October 2nd!

Gordonsville is famous for its fried chicken. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries,  local women carrying platters of the delicacy on their heads served it, along with pies and coffee, to passengers of trains stopping in town. Nationally-known at that time, Gordonsville's fried chicken earned the town the nickname of "chicken-leg center of the universe". 

To celebrate this special heritage, the Town of Gordonsville will hold its Famous Fried Chicken Festival on Saturday, October 2, 2021 from 11 am -  5 pm at the Gordonsville Fire Company Fair Grounds. The event will feature a fried chicken and pie contest, wine garden, and numerous craft and artisan vendors.   This is a rain or shine event!

There is no cost to attend the festival, but there is a $5** fee per person to enter the wine garden.
