Mike The Headless Chicken Festival

May 31-June1, 2024

Mike the Headless Chicken celebrates the story of a little chicken who lived for over a year without his head! This little chicken toured the country, and people came from far and wide to bear witness to this story of survival. Now we celebrate with a car show, live music, and a wing-eating contest.
