Battle of the Buffalo Festival

Sat 13th @ 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Battle of the Buffalo, presented by Clearview Cancer Institute, is an annual philanthropic chicken wing festival held at Big Spring Park in Downtown Huntsville, Alabama in honor of Paul “Fish” Salmon who was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2006. Paul was a brother in the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and a senior at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Paul passed away in 2007 and, in 2009, Alpha Tau Omega held its first festival centered around Paul’s favorite snack, chicken wings. Over fifteen years later, the event has raised over $275,000 for the Russel Hill Cancer Foundation and the HudsonAlpha Foundation. With the event getting bigger and better every year, Battle of the Buffalo will continue to support local cancer patients.
This April, for the fifteenth round, local restaurants and amateur cooks will compete with their tastiest wings in an effort to be crowned best of the Tennessee Valley. Last year, with the help of our generous restaurants and sponsors, Battle of the Buffalo brought together more than 5,000 community members, served over 10,000 pounds of chicken wings, and presented the Russel Hill Cancer Foundation with $42,000 and The HudsonAlpha Foundation with $18,000. This year, in its tenth year as a Downtown Huntsville Inc. Featured Event, Battle of the Buffalo Wing Festival will boast wing entries from local restaurants, various vendors from the community, a celebrity judging panel that includes key individuals across the Huntsville/Madison areas, an entire afternoon of live music, and a kid-friendly fun zone. The men of Alpha Tau Omega, along with the Russel Hill Cancer Foundation and HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, invite you to join us in continuing a tradition of love, health, and charity.
