The best festival in the Lowcountry is back! And you better get to the 2017 WingFest!
In 2016, winners included One Hot Mama’s, Reilley’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 Association, Coconutz 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.
