If hamburgers, ice cream, hot dogs, and French fries get their own day, then fried chicken is worthy of its own occasion. National Fried Chicken Day (not to be confused with National Chicken Wing Day) is celebrated annually on July 6.

Unfortunately, when or how the holiday originated is up for debate (KFC does appear to take credit for it on their website). While there’s no history lesson to share, there are deals. Plenty of fried chicken restaurants celebrate the food holiday by offering discounts and other savings.

Here are all the National Fried Chicken Day deals, discounts, and freebies we expect to see in 2025 based on what we saw in 2024.

There are plenty of other food deals that you can grab right now as well. Text HACKS to 57299 for more shopping tips and savings hacks.

Offers, prices, and local participation may vary.

National Fried Chicken Day is an annual event when restaurants have free and cheap chicken.

Restaurants like bb.q Chicken, Bonchon, Buffalo Wild Wings, Church’s Chicken, KFC, Popeyes, Royal Farms, and Taco John’s have participated in National Fried Chicken Day.
