Wing lovers have a great weekend in store as the second annual St. Catharines Chicken Wing Festival kicks off this weekend in Lakeside Park and promises to delight everyone’s tastebuds!


The family-friendly event features six local businesses selling wings and squaring off to be selected as best by popular vote. The event raises money for Community Care of St. Catharines & Thorold.

This year’s list of competitors in the best wing competition are:

  • Kully’s Original Sports Bar (2016 Champion)
  • Cat’s Caboose
  • Redline BBQ Catering
  • Roberto’s Pizza Passion (2016 Co-”Hottest Wing”)
  • Romby’s Smokehouse & Tavern
  • Wrigley’s Sports Bar & Lounge (2016 Co-”Hottest Wing”)

Wings are not the only thing looking for a champion, though. In addition to best wing and an all-you-can-eat wing contest on Sunday at 1:30 p.m, this year’s festival will host a ping pong championship. The new event is hosted in conjunction with Ping Pong Niagara and contestants can sign up for $10. Contestants can sign up at

Niagara Inflatables and lots of musical entertainment will also round out the Wingfest this weekend.  For full details check out their website: WINGFEST
