A Girl & Her Food: Chicago's Best WIng Fest


Chicago's Best WIng Fest

Chicago's Best Wing Fest – Hands down the most fun and entertaining food festival in Chicago.  It attracts die-hard wing fanatics.  People whose top passion in life is to find the ultimate buffalo wing and sauce.

It is tough to describe this festival, but it seems much more like a party.  The fun starts in the parking lot where a full on tailgate is going on from about 10:00 AM until doors open at 1:00 PM.  What other festival attracts a tailgate?  Its like a prefestival festival.  When the doores open, the energy in the auditorium is electric. It's wild in there.

Let the wing-eating begin! 

People are dancing like kids to a bland and celebrating the unmatched goodniess of the best wings in the city.

The festival also hosts a mens and women’s wing eating contest 
(the women’s contest was one of the funniest things I have ever seen in my life), and also recognizes and awards the top wings in the contest as voted on by judges. 

If you love wings, festivals, and fun, you can not miss this event next year.  Get your tickets early though, I know they sell out months in advance every year.

One serious wing man!

If I was a judge, I would vote Best of Fest, Exotic and Mild to Gator's Wing Shack! Besides having the best wings, whenever I eat there; they treat me like family. 

You must try the Garlic Buffalo, to die for! Look how fast they went.....
