Produced by Taste of Atlanta, this party for a purpose with some of the Southeast’s best chefs takes place at The Foundry at Puritan Mill, 916 Joseph E. Lowery Blvd. NW.

General admission tickets ($25) include entry to the event beginning at 1:30 p.m., endless wing tastes from 25 great local and regional restaurants, eat-and-greet with the chefs, live entertainment and a cash bar. A VIP First Taster option ($50) includes early entry at 1 p.m. and admission into the Southern Spirits Lounge featuring open bar tastes of spirits and craft beer.  Tickets can be purchased online at freshtix.com/events/atlanta-wing-fest. Children 10 and under get free general admission with a paid adult; must be 21 or older for VIP entry.

Participating restaurants include Canoe, Foundation Social Eatery, Saltyard, Southern Bistro and Table & Main alongside regional stars like Stagioni and Mimosa Grill in Charlotte, North Carolina; The Farm House and Urban Grub out of Nashville, Tennessee; and Poogan’s Smokehouse in Charleston, South Carolina.

“Atlanta Wing Fest is going to be a poultry party to remember,” says Taste of Atlanta co-founder Dale DeSena. “It’s a community of chefs coming together to show off their unique take on a crowd favorite and raise money for two great causes. It’s also a great warm-up to our Taste of Atlanta event coming up in October.”
