We are so excited and cannot wait to try the best wings from local restaurants! For future ticket and event updates, check our website or Facebook page. As a reminder, the event will be held rain or shine (no refunds). See you all May 7th!

Advanced Media Partners said, “We were looking for something different for Central Illinois to get behind and last year was a great event for Peoria’s Riverfront.  In teaming with the Peoria Park District and Friendship House, we know we will have another great event that will appeal to wing lovers and their families.”

“We are so grateful to Advanced Media Partners and the Peoria Park District for partnering with Friendship House on this unique event.  We are looking forward to a great day of food and fun on the Riverfront,”  states Sandy Arreguin, Interim President/CEO, Peoria Friendship House.  “We have had a wonderful relationship with AMP for a number of years, partnering with them on numerous events including the CT Discovery Concert series which has raised money for our programs and services as well as collecting over 3 tons of food to help us serve over 105,945 meals just this year! We expect the Annual Peoria WingFest to carry on the tradition of successful events hosted by these two fine organizations.”

Friendship House is a faith-based organization reaching out to all those in need, regardless of faith.
