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!

National Blue Cheese Dressing Day

Last year on July 16, 2018, Buffalo celebrated the first ever National Blue Cheese Dressing Day!!! The day kicked off at 12:01am sharp as the famed Electric Tower in Downtown Buffalo illuminated in blue. All day Monday, local Buffalo restaurants were encouraged to provide patrons with wing specials and ONLY serve blue cheese dressing…regardless of customer demands. The day was culminated at the Buffalo Bisons baseball game Monday Night at Coca-Cola Field starting at 7pm.

Highlights included the Bisons Blue Cheese character getting inducted into the Buffalo Wing Hall of Flame in between innings by the Wing King himself. PLUS the iconic “bobbing for wings” challenge also took place. If you didn’t know, this is a competition where two people dive face first into a kiddie pool filled with blue cheese and pull out as many wings as they can using only their mouth for one minute…you’ve just gotta see this for yourself. ?
