Gordonsville Fried Chicken Festival

May 18, 2019 11:00 am - 05:00 pm
Location: Gordonsville Fire Company Fair Grounds, 301 East Baker Street, Gordonsville, Virginia

Gordonsville is famous for its fried chicken, which was served to passengers of trains stopping in town during the late 19th and early 20th centuries by local women carrying platters of the delicacy on their heads. To celebrate this special heritage, the Town of Gordonsville will hold its Famous Fried Chicken Festival on Saturday May 18, 2019 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.

PEC will be tabling at this event with community members involved in our Town to Trail initiative, an effort to expand and refurbish Verling park and to assess the feasibility of developing area trails.
