Help celebrate the festival’s 15th anniversary!
To kick-off the 15th Annual Southern Hotwing Festival, the Memphis Second Line Jazz Band will help march our first arrivals (including chickens) through the gates and down Riverside Drive! The Grand Parade will start at 11:00am at the North entrance, and will be lead by real chickens all the way to the south stage!
Adults with children who arrive at the North gate at 10:30am may enter free and become a part of the parade. Parade participants will receive a free ticket (value of $20), and will have the ability to leave the festival and come back entrance free. There will also be free face painting for the kids and other fun games to enjoy after the parade.
Come join us for the opening song, “When the Hens Go Marching In!”
