Chicken Wing Festivals have been in existing for 27 years  in the UK and through out the United States.  One of the most notable ones being in Buffalo New York with inception in 2002 with an attendance of 40,000 and non-profits in their area has received in access of $200,000  and serving over 3 million chicken wings. 

We have officially inducted Michigan in a Festival that has staying power in bringing communities together.  Offering local and national business more exposure to the communities, while supporting the Arts and offering local non-profit organizations in the area an opportunity to gain more community support.    

The Festival will have a Wing Eating Contest; where the winner will be crown King/Queen of the Wings.  A Wing Tasting Contest; where patrons will decide which vendors has the best wings, dubbing the King/Queen of Wing Vending.

There is a $10 charge to enter the Wing Eating Contest; where you will be eat all the hot wings you can in 5 minutes (limited to the first 10 people - SATURDAY ONLY).   Wing Tasting Contest - $10 entry fee - limited to first 30 people.  You will visit a selected number of Wing Vendors and sample their wings and vote on the Best Wing Vendor. (SATURDAY and SUNDAY ONLY)


Join us for three (3) Great Family Fun filled Days - Bring your blanket or lawn chairs.

The Festival offers a great opportunity for non-profits to participate as a fund raiser for their organization.  

Volunteers are needed.  If you're interest in being a part of making history in Michigan and would like to know more about the Festival and what opportunities are available, contact the Festival Coordinator at (517) 749-7001
