Tennessee is known around the world as a place where great whiskey is not only made but also honored. The Tennessee Whiskey Festival was created with a passion to showcase the state’s craft spirits and the people who produce them. It’s the perfect opportunity to sample the best whiskey offered in Tennessee as well as other craft distilled products available in the area.
The 4th annual Tennessee Whiskey Festival will take place in Chattanooga at the First Tennessee Pavilion on the night of May 20th from 6:00pm until 11:00pm.
This year, the TN Whiskey Festival presents the ESPN Wing Zone. Local restaurants will put their best wing forward for you to taste and judge. The 'wing off' winner will be announced after the festival ends. All Festival Participants will be allowed 10 wings to sample at the Festival.
