Just when you thought London was set for summer food festivals, another delicious one pops up. And this one is dedicated to the utter beauty of the chicken wing! Winner winner chicken dinner…
Inspired by New York’s annual National Buffalo Wing Festival, the humble wing is getting its own day of celebration this August at London Printworks.
London Wing Fest will be two days filled with wings, beer and music and, let’s face it, you can’t really go wrong with that winning combo! This festival is all about bringing the finest chicken wings from around the country in one spot for all to sample. Expect to see big names like Absurd Bird, Le Bun and Randy’s Wing Bar amongst lots of others!
The aim? Very simple, the cooks want the acclaimed title of Best Buffalo Wing or Best Wild Wing and it’s up to you to vote for the best.
Make your way around all 16 vendors to try both kinds! A buffalo wing is unbreaded and coated in delicious hot cayenne sauce, whereas a wild wing has no rules and are down to the chef’s imagination. All wings are only £1 so bring a napkin because you’re bound to go round for loads.
There’s set to be some serious competitive action in the form of Dr. Sweetsmoke’s devastating Lava Wing Challenge and the traditional eating competition hosted by Frank’s Red Hot. There will be plenty of craft beer to wash everything down, along with live music and BBQ demonstrations, too!
Sounding like something you’d want to chick out? Grab your tickets here.
