Whether you like them hot and spicy, sticky sweet, or plain Jane, chicken wings have to be the most versatile protein on the planet. Over 50 years ago, chicken wings were first popularized in restaurants in Buffalo, New York, and now chicken wings are a global phenomenon.
In 1977, the City of Buffalo declared July 29th Chicken Wing Day, and in its proclamation proudly noted that “thousands of pounds of chicken wings are consumed by Buffalonians in restaurants and taverns throughout the city each week.”
In 2018, we expanded the celebration from one day to the entire month of July with Chicken Wing Festival. The inaugural event ran in Burlington and now includes Hamilton, Etobicoke, and Bloor West (West Toronto).
Join us this July in celebrating Chicken Wing Festival: a fun month of exploring, tasting, and enjoying chicken wings.
