Wingfest at Shelter Cove Community Park!

Love Barbeque? Can’t get enough of the myriad of sauces and dips for wings, and the delectable, mouth-watering and, sometimes even, wacky flavor combos? Then the WingFest on Hilton Head Island is a great event for you. Located at Shelter Cove Community Park along the water, WingFest is an event that has been going on for years in the Hilton Head Community and is a great event for locals and visitors alike.

So what exactly is WingFest, you ask? WingFest is a food festival where 15-20 local restaurants will cook their hearts out to serve the community their best wings, in hopes of being crowned as having the Best Wings on Hilton Head Island. Beyond the food and drinks, which there is plenty of, there’s also great live music by local bands. There’s no better combo than wings, a cold beer, views of the ocean and sunset, and live music playing in the background!
