National Fried Chicken Day is a made-up holiday, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it on July 6th.
The National Day Calendar, where you can keep track of all 365 days of celebrated dates like National Popcorn Day (January 19) and National Graham Cracker Day (July 5), claims it is still investigating “the origins of this food holiday.”
Finding a location to celebrate National Fried Chicken Day is easier than you may think, as many fast food companies and restaurants are offering free or discounted chicken wings, sandwiches, and meals in honor of the holiday. You can celebrate the day even if you don’t want to leave the house by making fried foods in an air fryer.
In addition to July 4th, there are two more national chicken holidays in July: July 27th is Chicken Finger Day and July 29th is Chicken Wing Day.
Find below a list of specials and deals that will be available on Thursday; many of them will last past July 6th.
