XOSO Presents Sactown Wings
By Laine Himmelman
Calling everyone who loves chicken wings, beer, and helping support the community (so yeah, basically everyone) – Sactown Wings (Facebook, Twitter, Insta) is almost upon us! Mark your calendars and work up that appetite-this year’s Annual SacTown Wings Event, is put on through XOSO Sports and Social League.
When: Saturday, August 15th
Where: Cesar Chavez Park from 3-7pm.
How: Get your tickets now, the summer’s tastiest festival is sure to sell out.
The annual festival will include live music from Arden Park Roots, craft and domestic beer, and lots and LOTS of chicken wings (over 40,000 to be exact!) from vendors such as Chicago Fire, Blue Cue, Barwest, Ink Eats and Drinks, Sac Food Co-op, Adamos, Brookside Restaurant and Bar, 3 Fires Lounge and more! If that’s not enough for you to rush over to CVS to buy out all the wet wipes, just wait because it gets better…
This year, Sactown Wings is partnering up with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento to help spread even more joy. Habitat’s rowdy Young Professionals group (“Habitat Young Professionals”) will be hosting the beer garden and ALL PROCEEDS from beer will go directly to Habitat to help build homes for families in need in our community. #buildthehyp
So while your date chows down on some wings, you can get “hammered for Habitat” ☺ (How fun is that?)
Sactown Wings is offering two ticket options this year with prices depending on your appetite and aptitude for procrastination:
- General Admission: $10 in advance/$15 at the door: Includes admission plus a souvenir mug. You can purchase food and beer at the event. Entrance at 3pm.
- VIP Wing Judge: $45 in advance, not available day of event: Early entry at 2pm, twenty (20) wing tickets, souvenir mug, and a Sactown Wings Judge t-shirt. You’ll be one of only 300 people who get to vote on who has the best wings!
To purchase tickets – visit www.sactownwings.com See you on the 15th! (I’ll be the chick with the overflowing souvenir mug, face smeared in BBQ sauce, and a big BIG smile.)
