Gatlinburg Ribfest & Wings is annual event featuring the area’s best ribs and wings, along with live entertainment and fun activities for all.

This year’s event is moving to the Parkway for a Street Fair theme. Scheduled for April 28, guests can purchase one admission and receive samples from all of the food vendors, until supplies run out! The exact location on the Parkway is between Traffic Light #6 and Riverside Motor Lodge/Reagan Terrace Mall in downtown Gatlinburg. Ribfest & Wings starts at 5pm and lasts until 8pm.
A panel will judge and award the best ribs or wings in seven categories. All vendors will vie for the coveted “Peoples Choice Award” as well.
A Hot Wing Eating Contest is also planned. It will feature wings prepared in sauces like “Blazing Bomb,” “Treacherous Tongue,” “ Fire Pit Hell,” and “Scorching Screamer.”
A few of the vendors that will be showcased include Calhoun’s Restaurant, Corky’s BBQ, Smoky Mountain Brewery and Wings & Things Café.
