Turkey Testicle Festival

Words by Nelson Taylor

Although a little tamer that the Testicle Festival in Bozeman, MT, the annual Turkey Testicle Festival has been around longer. Since 1979, folks have been trotting to Byron every October to suck down some serious nuts, 275 pounds worth of turkey testicles. What you may not know is that theirs hang under the left wing rather than between the hind legs.

How big are they? Human-size for the most part, but like real men, some balls are bigger than others are. Sponsored by the Union Street Station, a local bar, $3 gets you plenty to eat, plus lots of beer and bathroom humor.
