National Buffalo Wing Festival

Chicken wings at the National Buffalo Wing Festival

Celebrate Buffalo’s most famous food at the National Buffalo Wing Festival! Every year on Labor Day Weekend, tens of thousands of visitors flock to Coca-Cola Field in Buffalo to “wing it!” Since its inception in 2000, this festival has served over four million (yes, that’s right — million) of wings to its many festival-goers.

Aside from sampling incredible food, you can participate in a wing eating contest, a sauce cook-off, and a trivia game. You can even try your hand at bobbing for wings! There’s also plenty of live music, vendors, restaurants, and shops to enjoy. So make sure to bring your appetite (and a few napkins) to enjoy the Buffalo Wing Festival this year!

Buffalo German Fest

While you’re in town for the National Buffalo Wing Festival, save time to attend the Buffalo German Fest! It also takes place during Labor Day Weekend, and it’s a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the history of German heritage found in the Buffalo-Niagara region.

The festival is all about “Gemütlichkeit,” which translates to being in the right place at the right time with the right people. Isn’t that what a festival is all about? Check it out to indulge in German wines, browse a variety of authentic German goods, and dance to incredible live music!
