will arrive summer 2022

All of Lincoln’s best chicken wings in one place.

If you love wings, you’re going to love WingFest!

Our volunteer committee seeks out the best wings in Lincoln, Nebraska so that you can taste them all during the best outdoor summer event of the year.

Plus, it’s all for a good cause.

All proceeds go to support Creative Learning Spaces in Lincoln and Lancaster County. Funds from WingFest 2019 helped Norwood Park Community Learning Center enhance their learning environment by providing educational materials, alternative seating options and more!

Two awards are up for grabs:

Judges’ Choice chosen by our wingsperts.
People’s Choice chosen by you!
