Bailey Auditorium, Chicago, IL
21 years and over
Sunday, February 27, 2011 marks the twelfth year of the now legendary Chicago WingFest, which will once again be held at the Bailey Auditorium located at 1340 West Washington in Chicago from 1pm to 6pm.
Eleven years ago, a simple design was put into action; invite several of the city's best chicken wing serving restaurants to a competition to see, once and for all, which restaurant had the best wings in Chicagoland. The response was overwhelming. "Chicago loves to eat!" was the unanimous thought amongst WingFest event organizers. Chicago also loves its competition, and the competition and feeding frenzy have combined to form the perfect storm of an event…the perfect chicken wing storm!
And it's all for a good cause! To date WingFest has raised over $122,000 for various charities!
