If you haven’t been to the Midwest Wingfest, you HAVE to go this year. This thing started out as a small regional wing cook-off and has blown up into one of my favorite festivals of the summer! And this year, you get 2 DAYS of WINGS…Friday, August 30th & Saturday, September 1st in Fairview Heights, IL. You don’t want to miss this. My mouth is watering just thinking about all the hot & gourmet wings I’m going to fest on. They are going to have 25-30 vendors out at the East parking lot of Dillard’s at St. Clair Square competing for honors in all sorts of categories…”Best Hot Wing,” “Best Gourmet Wing,” “Midwest WingFest 20112 Best Wing,” and “People’s Choice.” Cash Prizes and trophies are up for grabs here people. Do you think you have a wing recipe that could delight my taste buds?
Restaurants, nonprofit organizations and average Jo’s are all invited to compete to be the Wing King! Over 96,000 wings were sold each year! And HEY, just because it’s WingFest, doesn’t mean there won’t be other food available. Talk about variety… There have been Italian nachos, chili dogs, and even Pig Snoots to go along with the million different variations of chicken wings. WingFest is expecting most of last year’s vendors to come back, but they are gladly accepting more. You can prove that you are the Ultimate Wing Master, raise money for a charity, or just bring in some extra dough for yourself.
See you there!
