The Mountaire Chickin’ Pickin’ Championship Returns to the Delaware State Fair…with a twist
Harrington, DE– The Mountaire Chickin’ Pickin’ Championship is slated to return to the FREE Entertainment Tent at the Delaware State Fair on Friday, July 20th from 5pm to 6:30pm. This, the 9th installment of the event, will feature a new twist as Mountaire has partnered with 88.7 the Bridge and the Delaware State Fair to bring a little Faith and Family to Chickin’ Pickin’. Today through July 14th 88.7 the Bridge will be registering local Youth Pastors to compete for a chance to win $500 for their church and be honored on the M&T Bank Grandstand stage in front of thousands of spectators just prior to the Casting Crowns performance that evening. In all there will be 20 “Youth Pickin’ Pastors” competing for the $700 donation for 1st place and $300 donation for 2nd place. All competitors will receive a free Chickin’ Pickin’ T-shirt.
This faith and family friendly event will ultimately pit these twenty “Pickin’ Pastors” against one another to see who can pick and shred the most meat from our oven roasted chickens in a timed, ultra competitive format. Event partner 88.7 the Bridge will be broadcasting LIVE beginning at 4pm. To enter just visit www.887thebridge.com! You must be 18 or older and a Pastor.
The FREE Entertainment Tent seats hundreds and you are encouraged to bring out members of your congregation to cheer you on! For more info on the Mountaire Chickin’ Pickin’ Championship visit www.mountaire.com/chickinpickin/.
What is Chickin’ Pickin’?
In the simplest terms, our winners are determined by who can pick and shred the most meat from our oven roasted chicken(s) in a 5 minute time frame. Contestants will have access to an unlimited amount of cooked birds, HOWEVER, they must pick and shred all the meat from a single bird before moving on to a new one. That includes meat from the breast, thighs, legs, wings and back. The picked meat is thrown into a collection tray, which gets weighed at end of competition to determine our winner. Contest judges are on hand to specify when a contestant’s bird is deemed fully picked, thus allowing them to start a new one. This process will go on for the entire (5) minutes. There can be zero bones or large chunks of meat in the collection tray. Such items will be removed before being weighed.

“In 2012, we wanted to explore the Christian genre of music as it is a genre that we have not showcased in many years. Along with our partners at 88.7 The Bridge, we felt that Casting Crowns was such a great fit”, says Danny Aguilar, Assistant General Manager and Director of Marketing for the Fair Grounds. “We are very excited to offer our patrons a different type of concert to attend.”
