The 8th Annual Downtown Schenectady Wing Walk is a delicious opportunity to taste the best wings in town!

On the day of the event, head to Proctors box office anytime after 10am to exchange your ticket receipt for your map/ballot. The event officially kicks off at 12pm! Stroll around to the various restaurants and sample one wing per location, making sure to get your map/ballot stamped by each restaurant. You can start your walk at ANY participating location. Once you sample at least half of the wings, mark your map/ballot with your favorite restaurant and drop it at one of several drop-box locations around downtown!
