Frequently Asked Questions

It is our goal to make sure you are as prepared as possible prior to your arrival at the festival. Over the years, there have been some common questions that frequently get asked that are helpful to know in advance. We have compiled them below.

If you still have questions or need further assistance, please email us at info@tristatewingoff.com.

Q: Does it cost anything to sample the wings?

A: Wings are distributed by each vendor at their own set cost. Wing costs to the consumer may vary between vendors.

Q: Can I bring a cooler or beverage carrier?

A: No, All outside coolers are prohibited on festival grounds during the event. You will not be permitted entry with any outside food or beverages.

Q: What is the policy on pets?

A: Sadly your four legged friends may not attend the event. For health and safety reasons any pets or animals will not be permitted on the festival grounds during the time of the event. Exceptions may be made for service animals.

Q: I purchased a ticket, what all is included?

A: Tickets will permit you access to the festival grounds. This includes access to all of the event festivities, entertainment, and assorted events. Hot Wing Samples, Vendor Items, Beverages, are not included with the cost of a purchased ticket, and neither are wings. Friendly reminder that this is a fundraiser… All ticket proceeds raised are going back into our community to benefit local non-profit groups. Your entry fee is going to a good cause, and believe us when we say it’s well worth the money!

Q: We’re bringing our child who is 12 years old. Does he/she need a ticket?

A: We have recently adjusted our policy to require children ages 12 and under to have a ticket ($15.00). However, we will be lifting all of the fees associated with the activities inside the festival (bounce houses, mechanical bulls etc.) We will not require an entry fee for our friends ages 3 and under.

Q: How young is too young for children?

A: There is no particular restriction or limit, but use your best parenting judgement. This will be a fairly active event complete with ongoing live entertainment that may be noisy in some areas. Children less than one (1) years of age may find such an active and noisy environment to be overwhelming or overstimulating in their still developing worldview, so if you are in any way concerned please consider calling up your favorite babysitter or dropping your youngin’ off with the parents or in-laws for a few hours while you come down and enjoy some wings. All children are the responsibility of their respective parents and guardians. DO NOT leave any child unattended while on the festival grounds.

Q: What happens in the event of inclement weather?

A: This event is rain or shine! The Allegany County Fairgrounds are equipped with a LARGE tents to keep us all nice and dry in the event of a quick summer sprinkle.

Q: Can I bring my own chair and canopy?

A: You are permitted to bring in your own folding chair and we encourage it! Canopies are permitted with the purchase of a canopy pass from the online ticket portal. There are only 100 canopy passes available. As our festival grows, we’re limited on space.

Q: Where do I park?

A: There will be ample on-site parking located next to the event grounds. Handicap and V.I.P. parking will also be designated. Please refer to our Event Map for reference.
