The best festival in the Lowcountry is back! And you better get to the 2017 WingFest! 

In 2016, winners included One Hot Mama’sReilley’s Bar & Grill, and R Bar & Grill.  What’s really cool is that those were the judge’s choice, while the “people” also made their selections.  Those included the Hilton Head Firefighter’s AssociationCoconutz Sportz Bar, and The Smokehouse.  The wing-eating competition was won by Bryan Spendley.

This year, on Friday, March 24, Wingfest Laser Light Show will take place from 5-9pm. This will include tailgate foods and and live music by Zack Stiltner Trio (5:30-7:15pm), and Groove Town Assault (7:15-9:30pm).  On Saturday, the competition will take place from 11am-5pm all at Shelter Cove Community Park (a great place for families with its park, shops and various other eateries). Saturday’s live music includes Soul’s Harbor Trio, a DJ, Deas Guyz, and Matt Parker & The Deacons. Check out the more than 20 booths featuring food, goods and services in the Lowcountry.

All events are kid-friendly and there will be an awesome Kids’ Zone by Amazing Event Rentals.
