Sactown Wings

Annual outdoor food festival in August

  • July 30, 2017

    Everybody loves a festival, and pretty much everyone loves chicken wings right? So why isn’t there a festival dedicated to this delicious food?! While Sacramento has plenty of beer fests, bacon fests, and chili fests, there was a severe lack of tribute being paid to chicken wings in the area, and we set out to change that!

    This fourth annual festival will be serving up over 40,000 chicken wings at Southside Park, where you can nosh on the addictive finger food and decide which local restaurant makes the best version as chefs from the likes of Blue Cue, Chicago Fire and Kupros Craft House whip up their favorite recipes (past creations have included wings in flavors like jerk chicken, peanut butter, and Thai chili). Compete in a wing-eating contest or watch the action as you sip craft beer from local breweries, whose pours that day will benefit Habitat for Humanity. Kids can get their faces painted and jump in bounce houses while you listen to live music and watch a performance by BlyueRose Dance Project. $10 in advance ($15 at the door; $45 for VIP; Free for children ages 5 and under). 2-6 p.m. (Opens at 1 p.m. for VIP). Southside Park. 2115 6th St. sactownwings.com
