According to WGRZ News, Drew Cerza, the founder of the Buffalo Wing Fest said that holding the event at Sahlen Field would be socially irresponsible in light of COVID-19 so they came up with an alternative that would not only still include Buffalo, but everyone in the entire Nation.

Drew Cerza, the founder of the Buffalo Wing Fest, added this according to the WGRZ News report:

"This is an unprecedented reimagining of an American food festival. No other such event has ever attempted something like this before.  For years, I’ve heard from Wingfest attendees from across the United States who wanted us to bring a celebration of wings to their hometown. This year, we’re doing just that – all while raising money for a great cause.”
