The third annual Springer Mountain Farms Southern Wing Showdown, a summer festival celebrating unique culinary takes on a Southern staple, will take place this Sunday.
The event will feature creative talent from over 30 prominent Southeastern chefs from Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Local purveyor Springer Mountain Farms will provide chefs with all-natural chicken, and each chef will serve their unique recipe as they battle it out to win ‘Best Wing.’ The competition is judged by festival goers and a panel of wing aficionados.
Additionally, the event’s alcohol sponsors, including George Dickel, Dixie Vodka and Chattanooga Whiskey, will serve cocktails to complement the dishes.
Lasting from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m., the festival will be held at new, larger location, The Fairmont (1429 Fairmont Ave NW), a newly opened event venue in Atlanta’s West Midtown neighborhood.
Both general admission and VIP First Taster tickets offer attendees all-inclusive wings, side dishes, wine, beer, cocktail samples and live music from local Atlanta musician Alex Guthrie. VIP First Taster tickets allow guests to enter the event an hour early at 1 p.m. and are $65 now and $70 at the door. General admission tickets are $55 in advance and $60 at the door.
The festival will support Angel Flight and Second Helpings Atlanta, two local non-profits. For more information, please go here.
