Testicle Festival 2011: Montana State Society Offers All The Balls You Can Eat
There's quite a deal being offered in DC this weekend, assuming you have the balls to stomach it.
On Saturday night, roughly 500 people are expected to gather at the Arlington chapter of the American Legion for the 7th annual Montana State Society Testicle Festival-- also known as 'Testy Fest.'
This juice frontier delicacy is a special joy for Northwestern folks living inside (or just beyond) the Beltway.
For just $20 ($25 at the door), the festival offers "all the Crown Royal you can drink and all the balls you can eat,” festival organizer Birttany Beauliue says.
Bull testicles, that is, also known as Rocky Mountain oysters or cowboy caviar.
Festival organizers say the event will have 60 pounds of prepared bull testicles, sliced, fried and peeled to perfection.
If the event seems foreign to your typical night out in DC, that's because it's actually a Big Sky State tradition.
“It’s a great party in Montana,” Beaulieu explains. “Why not try to recreate the same thing here in Washington? It’s unlike anything else out here.”
Testy Fest 2011 takes place Saturday, June 11. from 6-10 p.m. at the Arlington chapter of the American Legion. Tickets are available here.
