The fun begins in
The Southern Hot Wing Festival is a celebration of the chicken hot wing, the drummie, the flat, flap, and everything in between. Established in 2003 by a local Memphain who felt that the South had more to offer than just amazingly great BBQ, the Southern Hot Wing festival has become a staple event each April bringing with it the warmth and the fire to usher in the Spring!
Boasting, on average, around 50+ teams a year, the Southern Hot Wing festival glorifies the almighty chicken (wing) in much the same way that Memphis BBQ has done with the Pig. So whether you are looking to participate in our contest or are just a fellow hot wing afficionado, we warmly invite you for a taste bud blasting, fun and enjoyable experience here at the 2015 Southern Hot Wing Festival. So bring your kids, bring your friends and come PIG out on some great wings from the best teams around!
