Europe’s Biggest Chicken Wing Festival Is Coming To Manchester

Wing Fest is bringing its poultry wares to Manchester.

Having set its sights on a new venue, the wing-centric festival will turn a little slice of Manchester into a poultry eating, music thumping and beer drinking event of epic proportion – click here to get your tickets.

On Sunday (September 15), the inaugural Manchester Wing Fest will pitch up in First Street South with more than 20 restaurants, street food traders, BBQ teams and pop-ups. All slinging their drums and flats for a quid a wing in a bid to prove they have the UK’s best and tastiest chicken wings.

Popular traders from London Wing Fest, such as Drum and Flats and We Serve Humans, will be
making an appearance, as well as the three-time winner of the People’s Choice Champions award, Wingmans.

Local kitchens, including Oh My Glaze, Flock, Sutikku, and Parmogeddon, will also feature on the bill. As well as chefs from across the country such as Greidy’s Wings, Birmingham, with more to be announced at a later date. And they’ll all be competing for the titles of ‘Best Buffalo Wing’ or ‘Best Wild Wing’.

Not just a festival for chicken wings, guests will be able to soak up live music from local blues bands, and DJs. They’ll also be able to take part in axe throwing and attend BBQ cooking demonstrations running across the event.

The revolutionary Wing Fest app will allow feast-goers to experience ground-breaking augmented reality and immersive experiences, including a chase-the-chicken game, and interact with the live-voting feature.

Those looking for wings with a serious bite can enter Dr Sweetsmok’s legendary Lava Wing Challenge, but be warned; it’s only for the brave. While those who fancy facing up to a mountain of meat can enter the Wing Eating Competition.
