The National Fried Chicken Fest will showcase restaurants from California, Tennessee, Kentucky, Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Louisiana at this year's festival. The festival will also feature popular San Francisco Bay Area, California vegan restaurant Veganation who will prepare their signature vegan cajun southern fried chicken and waffles.

This year's winner is Chef Ryan Galle, owner of Flavor Creations LLC, a recent graduate of Capital One Bank's small business development program. For the full list of restaurants, click here.

There will also be a variety of experiences for all ages including a kids pavilion, the GoNOLA Mist and Chill Lounge, the return of the Moet Chicken and Champagne VIP Lounge and the Crown Royalty Lounge will make its debut.
