There will be many flightless chickens bumping around Cincinnati come Saturday when the inaugural Queen of the Wing festival takes over Washington Park.
More than 30 area vendors and restaurants will be hawking their best chicken wings in a battle for poultry supremacy; one talented wing-maker will be crowned Queen of the Wing.
Wing slingers include Eli’s BBQ, Joella’s Hot Chicken, Bones Brothers, Mahope, Wicked Hickory, Fiery Hen and plenty more, including non-chicken vendors Graeter’s, The Cheesecakery and Vegan Street.
There will also be live music, alcohol and contests.
11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday (Sept. 28). Free to attend; wings available for purchase. Washington Park, 1230 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine, queenofthewing.com.
