The Tri-State Wing-Off & Music Festival

Saturday June 15, 2024 at the Allegany County Fairgrounds, the Western Maryland Jaycees host the Tri-State Wing-Off, a daylong competition where wing-serving restaurants fry up thousands of chicken wings to be eaten and judged by the public for numerous awards including the prestigious title of 2024 Wing-Off Champion!

The 12th annual Wing-Off will be an all day extravaganza filled with amazing and unique wings, plenty of cold beer and some SERIOUSLY awesome music! Don’t forget to get there in time for the wing-eating contest and watch competitors race to take home the coveted chicken trophy!

Your ticket price gets you admission to the event, some SERIOUS music acts (ALL DAY!), and access to the best wings and biggest beer truck in town! The entertainment line-up will once again knock yours socks off, and has proved to attract crowds from well beyond Western Maryland!
