For over 20 years, WingFest at Tussey Mountain has been drawing hungry, happy crowds to the slopes on Thursdays in the summertime. Thousands come for the competition, the camaraderie and the entertainment, as up to 30 local restaurants and 14 top local and national bands participate each season. This event has evolved over time into its current state as a competition decided by the people’s vote — each paid guest through the gate receives one vote ticket which can be used to select your favorite wing vendor of the night. Voting ends at 9:30pm to be tallied and a winner announced by 9:45pm! All seven winning restaurants will compete at The Finals to determine the Tussey Mountain Wing King!

In addition to competing Wing vendors, these awesome businesses will be set up and serving great food and drinks at every WingFest:

Doan’s Bones BBQ, Packer’s Concessions, Rosie’s Pierogies, Rita’s Italian Ice, Crazy Carl’s Kettlecorn

WingFest is more than just wings and sauce, its also been voted as the “Best Place to See Live Music” in State College — and we’ve got another great slate of entertainment on stage this season! From the best local bands to nationally touring tribute acts, you’ll want to sing along to the tunes you know with the people you love at one of the nicest spots in Happy Valley. And if wings ain’t your thing, we’ve got other great food, too! Re-entry is permitted for WingFest, so you are able to enjoy the other activities at Tussey Mountain like Go-Karts, Mini Golf, Batting Cages and Skate Park!
