Summer Adventures: Wing & Rock Fest!

Hot and swimming. Buffalo. Garlic Parm. Honey BBQ. What do all of these have in common? Wings. All of them are extremely delicious chicken wing flavors. What can make these wings better? Rock music. Beer. What do you get when you combine them? The Wing & Rock Fest.


The Wing & Rock Fest is held at the end of May/early June every year. It's sponsored by Rock 100.5. A bunch of restaurants and wing joints come out and sell a wing for a $1, so you can get 10 different flavored wings from 10 different places for $10! Talk about a dream come true. They do this because there's a wing tasting contest. Best wings win!

We got there around 1:30/2 P.M. on Saturday. We walked around to check out the fest before settling down to listen to music or buy wings. They had so many different vendors throughout the city park and two stages. One was a gazebo and all day Saturday was kids from a Rock Music school in a nearby city; some of them were pretty talented! The other was an official stage where "big" bands from the area preformed covers of different rock songs.

They had a few food trucks that were selling ice cream, drinks, beer and even non-wing food for those people who don't like hot buffalo wings (trying not to judge you....). The fest also had an area with corn hole boards so that people could hang out with their friends and family and just enjoy the beautiful weather. My friends and I jumped in to play as soon as we could. We cannot seem to give up an empty corn hole board.

When we finally did decide to have some wings we went to the Wing Stop tent. There were so many to choose from, but I had ever had Wing Stop wings before. I got about 8 wings, 2 for each flavor and split them with my boyfriend.
  1. Garlic Parm - Taste way better than they sound.
  2. Atomic - My mouth is still on fire. 
  3. Original Hot - They're the original hot wing, how do you turn those down?
  4. Hickory Smoked BBQ - I was NOT a fan at all. I will avoid these. My taste buds said no.

Overall the music and beer were good, the food was better and the ice cream was the best. I can't wait for next year, and neither can my taste buds!
