The event’s description says, “TENDERFEST IS BACK AND BIGGER THAN EVER !!! We’ve got your favorite comfort food in all styles, shapes and sizes. We’ve collaborated with the worlds best chicken spots like Willie Mae’s, Raising Canes, Howlin’ Rays, Delilah, Original Dinos Famous Chicken, Daring and LA’s Go Go Bird to bring you tenders in classic nostalgic style, off the charts spices, and unexpected flavor combinations.”

Additionally, the website says, “Not to mention our lineup of top celebrity chefs like Tim Hollingsworth, Marc Iacono, Nyesha Arrington, Nobu Restaurants and more go head-to-head to compete in the National ConTender Championships for Best Tender where you’ll get to experience their custom recipes first hand.”

Speaking of celebrity chefs, the best chicken tender restaurant on the Westside, chef Brandon Kida’s Go Go Bird, located in Culver City in the Citizen Public Market, will be one of the competitors at Tenderfest. 

In an emailed statement, chef Kida said, ““Our Go Go Bird team is bringing its A-game to TenderFest! It’s going to be a fun day with awesome vendors and fried chicken super fans. It doesn’t get much better than that!”

The competition will be fierce and the festival will also include “very special dessert vendors and an all-you-can eat french fry station with the best fries in Los Angeles.” and have DJ sets from Zach Bia and friends.
