More samples, more prizes, more food categories and more grill cooks highlight the expanded Whiskey & Wings Grill Fest on Saturday, Sept. 6 at The Village at Winter Park Resort.

The event, now in its third year, has been handed over to Dana Cain Events for the expansion project, which brings in a variety of grilled foods and desserts to top off the samples of chicken wings and whiskeys.

All food is being sampled with Taste Tickets, so attendees can try a variety of foods from all of the cooks. Dozens of types of wings — from hot to mild to over-the-top — will be at the event, with an array of homemade dipping sauces. More grilled meats and skewers will also be offered. Side dishes include everything from grilled veggies to hand-battered fried pickles.

The entertainment line-up includes live music, grilling demos and eating competitions. And each attendee who buys Taste Tickets also gets to JUDGE the samples. Awards are being given out in 16 categories – all judged by People's Choice votes. See all of the categories online at http://whiskeyandwingsgrillfest.com/competitions.html .

Admission to Whiskey & Wings Grill Fest is free, and visitors may buy $1 Taste Tickets to indulge in a little or as much as they wish. Hours are noon-5 p.m. For more information, visit http://www.whiskeyandwingsgrillfest.com or call event organizer Dana Cain, 303-347-8252.
