Another FANTASTIC Wing-Off is in the books. We want to take a few moments to thank all of our partners for helping to make this festival a continued success:

Thomas Cumberland: We couldn’t thank you enough for coming back as our Main sponsor, year after year. Thank you for believing in us and being so generous! We appreciate you more than you know!
Aircon: Our returning cup sponsor. We also appreciate your loyalty to us! (And so do the 2,000+ cup buying patrons!) You also make for a pretty good “neighbor!”
First Peoples: In addition to your generous monetary contribution, you lend us your employees (and branches) to make this thing happen. We absolutely couldn’t pull this off without the resources you provide us. Thank you!
Sam Adams: Western MD Distributing has been with us since the beginning. They helped bring Sam Adams on board this year, and we think the Corn Hole they brought a long was a huge hit! Thank you for your sponsorship!
Rehab 1st: Another long time supported of the Wing-Off… making the Wing Eating competition better year after year. Thank you for all of the work you do to pull off such a fun portion of our event!
Allegany College of Maryland: The trolley service has been an incredible addition to our festival the last 3 years, as we’ve outgrown our parking lot. Thank you for seeing a need and offering a solution to assist us providing a great day for our patrons!
The Final Touch/Riverside Sports: Every Wing-Off tshirt from the very beginning has came from The Final Touch. Thank you guys for putting up with our multiple revisions, turning every order around quickly, AND donating back to us when it’s all said and done.
Allegany Radio Corporation: Always going above and beyond to help us spread the word about our festival. The interviews, the commercials, the constant plugs and the giveaways have been so helpful to us.
Xerox: New to the Wing-Off, Xerox stepped up to assist with the Handwash Station. We’re so happy to have you on “TEAM WING-OFF” and would love to have you back!
Hunter Douglas: Literally, the COOLEST sponsor on the list. Also new to the Wing-Off this year, Hunter Douglas lent a hand in keeping our guests cool with the Misting Tents. A very welcome addition for all in attendance!

We received even more donations (in money and time) from local businesses who just want to see the Wing Off succeed.
