The Columbus Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner with American Nitrile for their “First Annual Smokin’ Hot Wing & Music Fest”!

Special Thanks to Mike Tibbetts, owner, Oscar’s of Dublin for his support of the wing festival.



Join us for a day of fun, music, good food and competition –
where we put our local teams to the test.

Smokin’ Hot Wing & Music Fest is a chance to come together and celebrate our great community and American Nitrile – bringing manufacturing back to the USA, all while supporting great causes – scholarships for manufacturing interns from Grove City Career Academy and A Kid Again – for families raising children with a life-threatening illness.

At this family-friendly event, you’ll have a blast listening to great music as you enjoy scrumptious wings (place your vote for best tasting wings) while you enjoy an ice-cold beer or some great treats from the food trucks! You’ll laugh watching contestants bob for wings as your friends and family are having fun playing cornhole and enjoying face painting activities!
