For the past sixteen years, Chicago’s Best (and original) WingFest, has been held annually indoors every February, and it has grown to the point of peak capacity where tickets sell out in mere seconds. The demand for more wings has beckoned Chicago’s Best Summer WingFest, a bigger and better version to be held outdoors as well as indoors, on Saturday, September 5, 2015, from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., once again at the Bailey Auditorium located at 1340 West Washington in Chicago.
Chicago’s Best Summer WingFest will feature double the wing-slinging restaurants, live music, carnival games, a vendor market, craft beer and a full bar, all the for the same price as the original winter WingFest! A general admission ticket will still be only $40 per person and will include all the wings one can eat from up to 40 of the finest chicken wing establishments in all of Chicagoland. One restaurant will be deemed Chicago’s Best Summer WingFest winner by popular vote, via text, and the winner will receive $1000 cash.
The inaugural Chicago’s Best Summer WingFest is collaborating with Chicago Special Events Management http://www.chicagoevents.com/ to ensure the first Summer WingFest is indeed Chicago’s Best. And it will all be for a good cause as WingFest has raised over $155,000 for various charities, to date. This Summer WingFest will benefit Variety the Children’s Charity of Illinois http://variety.org.
