Dear Wing Lovers,

Sadly, we have to cancel our 10th Annual Milwaukee WingFest. We were excited to watch some wrestling this year and enjoy some of the best wings that Milwaukee has to offer. We were confident that we would be one of the only events to occur in 2020 as we had the entire Summerfest® grounds to spread out 2,000 people safely. The Summerfest® board has decided to not allow any events on the grounds in 2020. Everyone will receive a full refund.

We will continue to work hard to support our local wing establishments on Facebook/Instagram and in person, and suggest you do the same. We are launching a wing passport called Explore MKE in August that will feature the finest wings restaurants and offering deals like buy a pound, get a pound free. This helps support our small business and all of our restaurant partners so please watch out for that.

We can't wait to eat wings with you in 2021, stay safe!

Best,
Swarmm Events Team

There is no better way to explore the Milwaukee area's BEST bars and restaurants than with one of our passport guides.
