WHAT IS MIDWEST WINGFEST?
We started Midwest Wingfest on a wing and a prayer to create an all out food and music festival with a mission to raise money for Disabled Veterans and first responders. It has now grown to become an epic annual showdown where local restaurants and organizations come together to prove who really has the best wings in town!
This event, held outside of St. Clair Square on the east parking lot attracts 40k wing lovers from far and wide to enjoy two days of celebrating chicken wings, good music, and good drinks all while raising money for a great cause. Many of our food vendors choose charities to support as well. "If we have upwards of 30 amazing food vendors all supporting charities think of all the good we can do while having an amazing entertainment filled weekend" Said WingFest Founder Doug Shoemaker.
Vendors will compete for Best Gourmet Wing, Best Hot Wing, and Best Overall Wing. If cooking wings ain't your thing, perhaps eating them will be right up your alley. We have an adult and teen wing eating contest but new for this year we will even have a military themed wing eating contest. This year we will find out which branch of the military or first responder really is the best. At eating wings that is.
Join us as Midwest Wingfest returns in 2019! Come out and have an amazing weekend and help us raise money to support Purple heart recipients, Gold Star families and Homeless Veterans.
