The King of the Wing Festival is Back!
It’s time, once again, for fans of the chicken wing across Pittsburgh to unite and rejoice. That’s right, the 2nd Annual King of the Wing Festival is set to commence on Sunday, July 10th from Penn Brewery in Pittsburgh’s North Side! This celebration of all things wings will get you up close and personal with the diverse lineup of wing and sauce styles found at your favorite destinations all over town, plus give you an opportunity to see the inner-workings of one of Pittsburgh’s longest-operating craft breweries.
Some of the best chicken wings from 20 local restaurants will be at your disposal with plenty of Penn Brewery beers to wash them down. At the end of the afternoon, a panel of judges will rate the wings in four separate categories before crowning the official 2016 King of the Wing. The event will also feature live music to keep the party rockin’.
