Calgary WingFest 2016 is committed to bringing the best selection of chicken wings to the people of Calgary. We’ve canvassed the city from north to south, east to west to curate the best chicken wing vendors for an evening of cold beer and hot wings. Discover new flavours and find out how much heat you can handle at the Calgary Wing Fest.
With more than 5 YYC wing vendors to choose from, we’re including your local favourites. Stay tuned as we begin to add in this years participants.

On Saturday, September 10th, select wing venues from across Calgary will compete to showcase their tastiest and most unique wing flavours.

This Week’s Featured Competitor
The Barley Mill Pub
From the waterwheel that greets guests at the entry, to the aged-lumber construction of the second floor, a nod to the Eau Claire lumber company, the Barley Mill is an iconic Eau Claire staple.
Locals visit the Barley Mill for their awesome summer patios, draught beers, premium scotch, and outstanding chicken wings.
For wing lovers, the Barley Mill is a must try. Their chicken wings are thick! Sample from Mango Bourbon, Buffalo, Lemon Pepper, Parmesan Ranch, Mahogany, Sweet Smoke Rub, and Honey Sriracha.
