The Roanoke Wing Fest is the largest one-day food event in Roanoke, and it will take place August 26 at Dr Pepper Park in Downtown. This year’s event will feature at least eight teams competing to see who has the best wings in the city, including contestants from food trucks to national chains. The competitors will serve up a variety of wing creations, and the patrons will vote to see who has the best recipe. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in prize giveaways, Clucking Karaoke, and The Chicken Strut. The event is also home to the city’s largest cornhole tournament. Those looking to participate in the tournament can register before the festival through the event website. Musicians including Poe Mack, Moccasin Creek, Cory Campbell, and more will perform throughout the event, and a kids area will feature fun activities and games for all ages. We got the chance to interview Waynette Anderson, a representative for the event, to learn more about this chicken wing blowout.
