Chicago Events: WingFest Food Festival & Competition

Chicago’s Best WingFest: Buffalo, Barbecue & Beyond

Munch on unlimited chicken wings in four categories (mild, hot, barbecue, and exotic) at Chicago’s Best WingFest. Taking place on Sunday, March 5, this fun food festival features chicken wings from top local restaurants. There will also be live blues music, raffle prizes, and beads given away throughout the entire event – and part of the proceeds go to local and national charities. It’s chicken wing-slingin’ for a good cause – and one of the tastiest Chicago events of the weekend.
