The 9th annual Wing and Rock Festival will be taking place on Saturday May 31 and Sunday June 1 at the Park at City Center in Downtown Woodstock.

This FREE event is the third largest wing fest in the country featuring some of Atlanta’s best tasting chicken wings from local restaurants & bars plus great live music on two stages featuring more than eight bands. For the kids there will be jumpies, rides, face painting & more along with local teen bands on the gazebo stage. For the adults there will be cold beverages to wash down those tasty wings and specialty foods plus a large art and crafts area for those looking for some unique hand crafted items from the area.
Area wing vendors will compete in several competitions throughout the weekend to determine who has the best tasting buffalo sauce and non-buffalo sauce plus the People’s Choice Award. The People’s Choice Award is where the attendees get to vote for their favorite wing at the festival. Chicken wings & other food items are available for purchase at each participating food vendor.
