Get ready to indulge in a finger-licking extravaganza as Wing Fest, the largest chicken wing festival in the world, returns to Derbyshire to celebrate its 10-year anniversary. This ultimate wing experience is a must-attend event for food enthusiasts and wing lovers alike.

Created by Richard Thacker, a passionate wing enthusiast and street-food trader, Wing Fest aims to showcase and appreciate independent food businesses and emerging brands. With its lively atmosphere and delicious offerings, this festival has become a staple in the food festival calendar.

Wing Fest will be taking over Derby's renowned Bustler Market for three days of food, festivities, and fun. From Friday, May 17 to Sunday, May 19, visitors can immerse themselves in a world of mouthwatering wings, lively music, and exciting competitions.

A Wing-Lover's Paradise

Prepare your taste buds for an abundance of poultry consumption at Wing Fest. The festival will feature a variety of traders from around the county, showcasing their unique flavor combinations. With sessions held on Friday evening, Saturday afternoon and evening, and Sunday, there's plenty of time to savor every bite.

Among the ten different traders participating in the festival are award-winning Shwings from Chelmsford, Chatty Patty from Birmingham, and Nottingham's Dirty Chicken. Each trader brings their own twist to the wings, ensuring a tantalizing experience for every wing connoisseur.

But Wing Fest is not just about the wings. It's a celebration of all things delicious. Derbyshire's famous doughnut specialist, Project D, will be present, offering their renowned doughnuts to festival-goers. And to wash it all down, there will be a wide selection of beer and bourbon to quench your thirst.

The Ultimate Wing Showdown

One of the main highlights of Wing Fest is the highly anticipated competition to determine who makes the best wings in the UK. With a staggering 100,000 drums and flats up for judgment, the competition is fierce.

The wings are divided into three categories: the best BBQ wing, the best buffalo wing, and the best wild wing. This allows traders to showcase their unique flavor combinations and battle it out for the top spot. It's a wing showdown like no other!

Who will come out on top? Will it be the smoky BBQ wings, the tangy buffalo wings, or the fiery wild wings? Attend Wing Fest to taste and judge for yourself.

Thrilling Competitions and Entertainment

Wing Fest is not just about eating wings, it's also about having a great time. The festival is known for its legendary eating competitions that provide messy and entertaining spectacles for attendees.

Get ready for the Lava Wing Challenge, hosted by Clifton Chilli Club, which promises to bring the heat as the UK's hottest wing challenge. Think you can handle the spice? Test your limits and see if you can conquer the fiery wings.

Another highlight is the Flying Goose Wing Eating Competition, hosted by Food Review Club. Brave and hungry ticket holders compete to see who can devour the most chicken wings. It's a battle of speed and determination, and the winner will surely earn their wing-eating glory.
