Food, Music, Contests & Fun for the Entire Family!
The Albany Wing Fest is a family friendly event. We've created it to be a fun & safe event for everyone. There are 6 live bands throughout the day. We have plenty to do for kids of all ages: dunking booth, bouncy houses, face painting, train rides, clucking contest, horse & carriage rides, hay rides and more. There all types of food vendors (not just chicken wings). We also have art & merchandise vendors there too. The helicopter rides are always exciting & fun for everyone.
The main event (at least for the wing vendors) is the wing competition. Who has the best hot wing, best mild wing, most creative wing and People's Choice Award. The People's Choice Award is where the attendees get to vote for the wing they like best. The other wing contests have local celebrity judges. Wings are available in small quantities for purchase to sample.
Don't miss the wing eating contest! Who can eat the most wings in 2 minutes. This is a free contest for the attendees to participate in. Sign up before 1:00pm on the day of the event and your name may be one of the 6 people drawn to go up against the 2011 & 2012 Wing Eating Champion! If you win you will be awarded a trophy, festival t-shirt and bragging rights for the rest of the year!
So bring your blankets and lawn chairs and make a day of it. Get your hand stamped and come and go all day! The Albany Wing Fest is food, music, contest and fun for the entire family! We hope you enjoy yourself. If you have any suggestions please visit our contact page.
