The menu is set and the beer’s chilling in preparation for the Child Advocacy Center’s second annual Chicken Wing and Micro-Brew Fest!
It will be held Friday, Feb. 1 from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Lake Ontario Event & Conference Center, E. First St., Oswego.
One of Warm Up Oswego’s official Fiesta Hot Spots, the CAC’s Chicken Wing and Micro-Brew Fest features chicken wings from a variety of Oswego County’s favorite eateries, including Cheap Seats Sports Bar & Grille, Canale’s Restaurant, End Zone, Greene’s Ale House, GS Steamers, Blowing Smoke BBQ, Kristen’s Kitchen at Battle Island, Larkin’s Restaurant, Lighthouse Lanes, O’Connor’s Main St. Pub, and Woodchuck’s Saloon.
The restaurants will compete for the CAC’s Blue Ribbon Award for the best tasting chicken wing as they offer samples of their signature chicken wings. Eagle Beverage will also be on hand to offer samples from a wide variety of micro-brews.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the CAC, a non-profit organization that works hand-in-hand with local law enforcement, prosecution, child protective services, medical providers, mental health providers, and victim advocacy professionals in Oswego County to protect and serve child victims of sexual and physical abuse.
Tickets include a sampling of each restaurant’s signature chicken wing and each micro-brew.

Executive Director Karrie Damm is looking forward to the event and is excited to once again be a part of Warm Up Oswego.
“Last year’s Chicken Wing and Mirco-Brew Fest was such a huge success that we have decided to make it an annual event,” she said. “We are looking to build on our previous success and make this year’s Chicken Wing and Micro-Brew Fest bigger and better than last year’s.
“Thanks to the efforts of our fundraising committee: Ray Cruz, Jake Mulcahey, Karen Perwitz, Elizabeth Fadden, Jolene Bechtel, Bonnie Farmer, Sara Buske, Stephanie Hammond, Jenny Donohue, Melanie Proper and Gail Godici, as well as our dedicated board members, we have added a number of eateries to the wing competition and moved the event to a much larger venue to provide our guests with a more comfortable atmosphere and the opportunity to enjoy even more choices of chicken wings and micro-brews. We are happy to be a part of Warm Up Oswego and are excited about holding the event at the beautiful Lake Ontario Event and Conference Center.”
In addition to the chicken wing and micro-brew tasting, the event will also feature an “Attitude Adjustment Hour” from 5 to 6 p.m. and live entertainment from 6 to 10 p.m.
All proceeds from the CAC’s Chicken Wing & Micro-Brew Fest will benefit the CAC and their efforts to serve children and their families affected by child abuse.
“The epidemic of child abuse continues to plague Oswego County,” said Damm. “With the support of concerned community members we can raise the awareness of child abuse and develop the resources necessary to allow the CAC continue its mission of responding to child abuse in ways that bring about healing and justice for children and their families, and working to reduce and prevent child abuse in our communities.”
