Chicken Wing Society Cook-off
It’s the spiciest 4th of July festival to ever hit Downtown Reno. This year Silver Legacy Resort Casino hosts the 10th Annual Great International Chicken Wing Society Cook-off on Virginia Street over the Independence Day weekend.
From Saturday, July 2 to Monday, July 4 you’ll have a chance to sample the best sauces, taste top-notch wings and watch the best in the business compete for poultry pride. Nearly a dozen restaurants and bars will be on hand to compete, including last year’s defending champ.
The general public is invited to help judge the wings and crown this year’s champ. Just go to “The Hen House” and sign up to be a “Chicken Hawk” to taste each sauce and vote.
Bring the whole family for an affordable 4th of July celebration. Admission is free and with arts and crafts vendors and live music from the Red Hot Smokin’ Aces, Hindsight and The Palmore Brothers, the Chicken Wing Cook-off is also the place to hang out all afternoon.
Last year over 10,000 wings were served at the Cook-Off, with sauces ranging from hot and spicy to sweet and savory. Come wing it with Silver Legacy at this year’s Great International Chicken Wing Society Cook-off on July 2 to 4. Festivities are into the evening each night.
Silver Legacy is perfectly situated in the heart of downtown Reno, connected to the Eldorado and Circus Circus Reno by skyway and within walking distance of a number of Reno entertainment venues, including the Reno Nevada Events Center, Reno Ballroom and Reno Aces Stadium.
