“Wing Fest” Returns to Downtown Glens Falls

Who has the best wings? Find out Saturday, April 29, in Downtown Glens Falls!

The Glens Falls Collaborative will be hosting its annual Wing Fest event on Saturday, April 29, from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM in Downtown Glens Falls. The event is structured as a competition between restaurants for the best wings… Once tasting concludes at 3:00, an Awards Ceremony at the bandstand in City Park at 3:30 PM will close out the event, with multiple categories of winners. There will also be live music! The 2nd annual Michael DuBray Inferno Wing Eating Competition will also take place, at 2:00 PM on Glen Street. The winner will receive a trophy and bragging rights! Competitors pay a registration fee of $25, which will go into the Michael DuBray Scholarship Fund; Michael DuBray, also known as DeeJay DuBray, helped found the event, and served as its chair and champion for many years. You can register for this event now at www.glensfallscollaborative.com.

The competition is still in need of participating restaurants! Restaurants are invited to participate by applying online at www.glensfallscollaborative.com. This event will be cash only, a departure from the previous ticket system… Participating Downtown restaurants will serve from their storefronts, and restaurants from outside the city will serve from chosen locations along Glen, Ridge, and Maple Street.

Voting will take place online at glensfallscollaborative.com. QR codes for voting will be displayed around town, and votes must be cast no later than 3:00 PM!

This event is produced by the Glens Falls Collaborative, with major support from the City of Glens Falls and the Glens Falls Business Improvement District. The Glens Falls Collaborative was created in 2012 by a group of dedicated merchants who wanted to cross-promote and increase business flowing to Downtown Glens Falls, in cooperation with the City of Glens Falls and the Glens Falls Business Improvement District. The Collaborative has expanded to put on major Downtown events – including Pet Fest, Wing Fest, Grandma’s Table, Take A Bite, Boo2You, the ADK Christkindlmarkt, and Hometown Holidays. The Collaborative also creates an incredible brochure of Glens Falls, with a large distribution and beautiful joint advertising; and now includes restaurants, arts and nonprofit organizations, health related businesses, media arts firms, many different service providers, and other area businesses.
