National Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival (Buffalo, NY)
September 1 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
The idea for the festival came from a movie called Osmosis Jones. Bill Murray starred as a compulsive eater with a goal of attending the Super Bowl of junk food, The National Buffalo Wing Festival.
Ironically, there wasn’t one. That is when native Buffalonian Drew Cerza, now affectionately known as the Wing King decided to make it happen back in 2002.
THE NATIONAL BUFFALO WING FESTIVAL has become the “Super Bowl” of the chicken wing industry for restaurants, wing lovers and even competitive eaters. The festival has been showcased by such national media as the Food Network (All-American Festivals, Unwrapped, Throwdown with Bobby Flay and Emeril Lagasse Live), the Travel Channel (Bar Food Paradise, Taste of America and Food Wars), NBC’s Today Show, ABC’s The View, Regis and Kelly, The CBS Morning Show, BBC, Fox and Friends and even a PBS documentary.
So, “WING IT TO BUFFALO” and join us for the fun and excitement at one of America’s greatest food festivals this Labor Day Weekend – The National Buffalo Wing Festival!
