Sponsorship Opportunities

Dear Prospective Festival Sponsors,

The 6th Annual Big Kahuna Wing Festival will be held on the 16th of June, 2018 at Worlds Fair Park in downtown Knoxville.  This event will host the park with the Sweet Smell of Hot Wings, Unreserved Participants, and Terrific Music with a Wing Eating Contest, Silent Auction, Kids Corner, and Fun for the Whole Family!  Combine this with some of the Best Wing Recipes and Teams and we have one Fantastic Event all to Benefit Empty Stocking Fund, Second Harvest Food Bank, The University of Tennessee Culinary Program and The Pellissippi State Culinary Program.

Founded in 2013, the Big Kahuna Wing Festival has raised $240,000 for our charity groups and we are hopeful to make an even bigger impact in 2018.

The mission of the News Sentinel Empty Stocking Fund (ESF) is to provide food and toys to disadvantaged East Tennesseans during the holidays.

Second Harvest Food Bank is the East Tennessee region’s largest hunger-relief charity; operating programs in 18 counties. The food bank secures and distributes over 16 million pounds of food and grocery products annually through a network of over 500 partnering non-profit organizations such as food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and schools.

The UT Culinary Institute also offers a wide array of continuing education opportunities through its other programs, including degrees in Retail and Consumer Sciences and in Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management. In addition, UT offers community cooking courses in dozens of topics related to food and wine.

The Pellissippi State Culinary Arts Institute is the result of a unique collaboration between Pellissippi State and the University of Tennessee. In cooperation with UT Retail Hospitality and Tourism Department, the Pellissippi State program offers advantages for students in terms of instruction, location and cost.

Please mark your calendar, June 16th, 2018 and make plans to come listen to fantastic music and eat some of the best Wings from around the South. Our Team of Volunteers at The Big Kahuna Wing Festival hopes to see you at Worlds Fair Park, Downtown Knoxville from 12:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. on Saturday, June 16th, 2018.

If you are looking for a way to raise the visibility of your company, product or service while helping the community, you might consider one of the sponsorship opportunities we offer.
