Learn about the creators of the Bakersfield Wing Festival!


Kristopher J. Evans

Corner 10 Productions

Event Co-Creator
Event Graphic Design Coordinator
Website Developer

Kristopher is the creator of the Bakersfield Wing Festival. As a lover of all things wings, he felt he was the right person to create this event for his hometown.

Kristopher loves to develop his own original sauces for wings, his specialty being his ‘Orange Honey’ a.k.a ‘Orange Honey For Money’ Sauce. His friends and family seem to really enjoy that flavor on wings but he does have a few other original sauces he’s currently developing to eventually bottle and sell.

Kristopher wants the Bakersfield Wing Festival to attract others who are as passionate as he is about wings whether it be eating them, cooking them or creating sauces for them. He also wants to attract people who may not be as passionate but who are simply looking for a good time and a memorable event!

Besides wanting Bakersfield locals to attend, he also wants wing lovers from out of town to travel to Bakersfield and experience this event as well!

Kristopher is the owner of the Bakersfield-based business, Corner 10 Productions, specializing in graphic design, website development, and photography. He also owns Corner 10 Photo Booth Services, providing photo fun for a wide variety of events.

NaTesha 'T' Johnson

Upside Productions

Event Co-creator
Event Coordinator
Event Executive Producer

NaTesha (or lovingly known as T) is the amazing and phenomenal executive producer behind the Bakersfield Wing Festival. Sought out by Corner 10 Productions, the pairing of these two are like lemon to pepper. It just fits.

Whether it is deep-fried, breaded, coated or sautéed, NaTesha salutes to the wing heavens. She hopes to attract wing-nuts who takes pride in the art of eating wings. Yes, there is an art. From the drum to the flat, you just can’t eat a wing any ole’ way. No meat left behind!

In 2010, she co-founded Upside Productions, L.L.C., an innovative savvy production company focusing on pre and post-production management, specializing in red-carpets, media liaison services, short films, public service announcements, commercials, videos, and artist bookings.

In 2018, she launched Upside Academy, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for high school students to give back to their community through volunteer participation.
