The city of Auburn has postponed its inaugural Chicken Wing Festival from Saturday, June 24, to Saturday, August 5, in response to an unexpected surge of interested vendors.

The event, co-hosted by the Auburn Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) and 315Live Ent, is set to include a chicken wing competition complemented by live music, DJ performances, and a plethora of artisan and craft vendors.


The festival, promising a fun day for families, will feature activities like basketball shooting competitions and will be situated around the intersection of Genesee and William streets. The chicken wing competition, open to any restaurants or food vendors who meet city and county vending requirements, will be judged in three categories: dry, sauce, and regular recipe. Trophies await the top three in each category, and a special people’s choice award, along with a BID gift certificate, is up for grabs.

Interested vendors wanting to be part of this gastronomic event are urged to contact BID Executive Director Stephanie DeVito. For more details about the festival, attendees can visit the event’s page on Facebook.
