Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry

March 16

The “Testicle Festival!”

The historic mining town of Virginia City goes “nuts” for St. Patrick’s Day as folks line up to sample tasty testes prepared by chef’s competing for bragging rights! The event features marching leprechauns, green attractions, and Rocky Mountain Oysters (yep – beef and sheep testicles). It’s a fun-filled day of unique eating as professional and amateur cooks compete for the most creative and unique dishes utilizing these unique delicacies.

More than 20 cooks from around the West serve up tasty testes by grilling, frying or smoking them in delectable concoctions that make you forget what you’re really eating. It’s a full-on Irish Testicle Festival with a beer garden, live Irish music, individual and team ball-eating contests, parade and the Leprechaun Bar Crawl. Dress up in your most outlandish St. Patty’s Day garb and enjoy the lively atmosphere of Virginia City!

The event is free to the public, but tasting package are available to purchase for sampling these “delicacies.”
