WINGA'18

19 LEGENDARY YEARS STRONG

Join Springfield Sertoma as they once again put on the spectacle known only as WINGAPALOOZA™. Wingapalooza™ is America’s original buffalo wing festival spanning over 18-years. Through the years, many other wing festivals have come and gone but Wingaplooza™ has continued to grow each year. That’s a testament to the sponsors, bands and the great patrons who look forward to attending the best food festival in Missouri.

With live music from some of the midwest’s best bands performing all day long, 100,000 wings to sample from over 30 of southwest Missouri’s best “Wing-Slinging” restaurants, it’s no wonder people take off work months in advance to join the throng of humanity that assembles to make wing-eating history. All wing samples are free with paid admission.

Come see what all the noise is about…the Original Wingapalooza™.
