The Alabama Chicken and Egg Festival is an interactive agricultural experience offering old-fashioned fun, food vendors featuring chicken entrees prepared in a variety of ways, and live entertainment on three stages by popular regional bands and local favorites. In previous years officials recorded more than 15,000 people in attendance. The event is organized by the Lawrence County Arts Council and made possible through the effort of more than 600 volunteers and dozens of sponsors.
Admission to the festival is only $5 per person and free for those under 5 years old.
Why a Chicken & Egg Festival?
According to Alabama Department of Agriculture Commissioner John McMillan, agriculture is the number one industry in Alabama. It employs over 476,000 people, which is roughly 21% of the state’s work force. Furthermore, producing over 1 billion birds a year, Alabama is the #3 producer in the nation. Each year, the Lawrence County Arts Council joins forces with the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries, the Alabama Cooperative Extension Services, Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, and the Alabama Tourism Department to celebrate all things chickens and eggs while attracting visitors to the City of Moulton.
