The Michigan Chicken Wing Festival
The Michigan Chicken Wing Festival was inducted into the Super Bowl of Wing Festivals in 2015 as a catalyst to bring the community together. This festival is not about how many wing vendors participate; it's more about the different flavors of wings you can buy at the festival. The festival provides a platform for food vendors to showcase their talent in vending; merchandise vendors to display their best products. In addition, national and local sponsors are allowed to promote their company and product(s).
The Michigan Chicken Wing Festival also includes a main stage featuring musical acts from all genres, live entertainment, pro wrestling, a kids zone with inflatables, a game trailer, community empowerment vendors, a health and wellness pavilion, give-aways, a VIP beer and wine refreshment tent, a chicken wing eating contest and a people's choice vendor contest, where one lucky winner is crown the Michigan Chicken Wing Festival King or Queen. This fun and exciting event has something for everyone!
