For years, you traveled to Buffalo to enjoy the National Buffalo Wing Festival. This year, we’re inviting you to bring the celebration of Buffalo’s famous food to your city and raise money for your local Food Bank with America’s Greatest Chicken Wing Party!

The Wingfest will not physically take place at Sahlen Field this year out of an abundance of caution due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and will transform into a nationwide celebration of the wing throughout October, National Chicken Wing Month. We're inviting you to join America's Greatest Chicken Wing Party by gathering your closest friends, supporting your favorite wing joint and making a donation to your local Food Bank! Find out more here and we'll see you back in Buffalo next year!

Then, consider one of the National Buffalo Wing Festival’s Amateur Cook-Offs!

After submitting recipes, cooks are selected to present their recipes in front of the Wingfest crowd. Winner gets lifelong bragging rights, a plaque and local media publicity.
