National Fried Chicken Day is observed in the United States of America annually on July 6. It is unclear how the day originated.[1][2]

In observance of the day, fried chicken is prepared in a variety of ways, and eaten.[3][4][5][6]

Some chain fried chicken restaurants such as Church's Chicken and KFC, and other chain restaurants such as Grandy's, offer promotions on National Fried Chicken Day.[7][8][9]

Outside the United States[edit]

In 2018 KFC's Australian operations offered the chance to win free fried chicken for a year.[10] The contest was entered by making social-media posts stating reasons why the entrant deserved the prize.[11] The winning entry was by a 19-year-old who, together with her friend, got the KFC corporate logotype tattooed on her foot.[12] The day is traditionally observed on July 7 in Australia out of respect for the time zone of origin.
