The Western Maryland Jaycees are a volunteer organization of active citizens ages 21-40, dedicated to Western Maryland, sharing the belief that in order to create positive change we must take collective action to improve ourselves and the world. Our members gain leadership experience and improve professional skills through community projects, individual training, and local and international connections.

All profits from this event are going back into our community. A non-profit organization will be chosen as the beneficiary of this year’s Wing-Off. In addition to supporting this well deserving group, the Jaycee’s also give back to other local non-profits the day of the Wing-Off. After our 2019 event, collectively, we have given back over $90,000 to non-profit groups in exchange for their help volunteering at the event.

Wing-Off History

The Tri-State Wing-Off was founded in 2011. After a successful first year, and an even better second, third, fourth and fifth year… the Wing-Off just keeps on growing!

    1. Hi Doobie,
      Unfortunately, we are not able to bring in any food or beverages from outside of the festival grounds in. However, Im sure there will be options for your family to accommodate their needs within the festival grounds.
