If you've spent a decent amount of time in Atlanta, then you'll know that the city has a totally underrated food scene. Whether you prefer more of a casual food-truck vibe or you like to dine out at the fanciest restaurants with tasting menus, there is plenty of amazing food to try in the city. With spring right around the corner, you may want to check out the best food festivals in Atlanta.

For the most amazing variety of chicken wings you can find in the city, you'll definitely want to make plans to check out the Slingin' Wings Festival that's going down this spring. You'll get to chow down on all the best wings in town and wash them down with a variety of boozy beverages, including plenty of craft beer.

It's all taking place at Heritage Museum & Park Sandy Springs in Sandy Springs, Georgia, on May 16.* The event will run from noon to 6 p.m., which is enough time to eat all the wings you can get your hands on.

Of course, you'll probably want to grab some drinks, play a variety of lawn games, and listen to the live music while you're there as well. If you think you have what it takes, you can even compete in the wing-eating competition.

General admission tickets only cost $10, which gets you four wing tastings, a voter's ballot so you can decide on your favorite wing, and access to all areas of the festival. You can buy additional wings for just $1 per piece.

You can also opt for a Wing Lover's ticket, which will come with 15 wing tastings. This is definitely the way to go if you're ready to eat a lot. These tickets cost $25, and they also come with a souvenir tumbler you can take home.

Other exciting Atlanta food fests include a boozy oyster fest in February and a massive brunch fest also coming in March.
