Who really does the best wings?

Europe’s biggest chicken wing show-down returns to London to provide the answer to that burning question - who really does the best wings?  On the 4th & 5th  August at Stratford Waterfront, in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, competitors from across the UK will work their culinary magic in a bid to be crowned the King or Queen of the Wing.

Wing Fest will see 35 contestants battle it out in two fiercely contested categories in a bid to persuade wing lovers of their merit:

Best Buffalo Wing

Described in the North American dictionary, from where this mighty morsel hales, as "Deep-fried wings coated in a spicy sauce." Of course to those in the know, this description simply doesn’t do this wonderful creation justice and the search for the best out there is fiercely contested across the world.

Best Wild Wing

This category is looking to explore and demonstrate the many exciting ways a chicken wing can be prepared and served in the broadest sense possible. In this category anything goes. Any flavour, any technique, any taste. Basically the rule is, there are no rules.

The culinary warriors battling it out in 2018 are a mixture of street food vendors, pop up legends, and restaurants including:

BBQ Dreams | Buffalo Joes | Chicken Shack | Randy's Wing Bar | Spit & Roast | The Joint | We Serve Human's | Rum Kitchen | Wingmans | Chuckling Wings | Lord of the Wings | Brother Bird | Thunderbird | Drums and Flats | Mother Clucker | Taco Dave | Gurt Wings | Roostered | Da Ja Chicken | Dookies Grill and more….

All wings are £1 and will be sold in individual joints (drums or flats) to allow voters to try as many wings as possible from each of the contestants.  Ticket holders vote for their favourite wing using the Wing Fest app. Please remember to download the app when it becomes available in July!

Dr Sweetsmoke’s deadly Lava Wing Challenge, which causes carnage every year, is on the Saturday, and Frank’s RedHot will be hosting their notorious wing eating competition on both days.

The charismatic DJ BBQ will be ruling the roost on the Chicken Shed stage in association with Southern Comfort and Buffalo Trace, where you can expect tantalising cooking demonstrations and BBQ tips.

Also for the first time this year, the entertainment line up will include impressive chainsaw wood carving dispaly ad fair ground rides.

There will be live blues and rock music, bourbon master classes and street entertainment through out both event days.
