Over 20,000 pounds of chicken wings are being prepped for the seventh annual Biggest Little City Wing Fest, presented by THE ROW, July 5 & 6 in the Heart of Reno. Over 20 wing cookers will slather and season their wings to perfection and compete for the accolades of best sauces and new found fans. Popular flavors of the past include strawberry cheesecake, maple bacon bourbon, peanut butter and jelly, garlic buffalo and ghostpepper. Bibs are optional.


This year’s #WingFest will feature free concerts on Friday from A Thousand Horses, who deliver an authentic fusion of southern rock and contemporary country mixed with rowdy jams and on Saturday from Lindsay Ell, who is lauded as “one of the most exciting and talented young artists in country music.” The full, free entertainment line-up for Biggest Little City Wing Fest is:
