Spicy, savory, salty and scrumptious statewide chicken wing vendors fly into Adado Park for patrons to decide who is the king, or queen, of wing vending. fifteen Flavors of Wings, Big Pooh's Chicken-N-Things, Marsha's Chicken and Fish, Finger Lickin’ Chicken, Get Stuffed Potatoes, A&E BBQ and Tender Bonez are competing for the crown.
Musical entertainment includes pop artist Adina Howard, Denise Davis and the Motor City Sensations and jazz artist Charles E. Anthony, among many others. Nearly two dozen market vendors will be on-site selling products.
This will be the national Chicken Wing Festival’s 27th year and its fourth in Lansing. New to 2018 is the Entrepreneur Zone — a place where new local businesses can showcase their products. Portions of the Michigan Chicken Wing Festival’s proceeds go toward the Against All Odds Foundation, a nonprofit for breast cancer survivors.
