wild couple of days, leave your children at home as the event
advertises "No kids, hassles or brought-in beverages.” All
attendees must be 21 years of age - a fun time, but not a family
affair!. While this party is said to be relatively tame, be
aware that you can plan to get an eyeful of half-dressed and naked
party-goers. If you’ve found you've partaken a bit too much of
the festival’s Bull Snort Brew, the lodge provides a free year-round
campground to lay your weary head.
The brainchild of Rod Lincoln, who owns the Rock Creek
Lodge, the annual festival has revitalized what was once a little
known stop along the road. Billed as "Montana
Tendergroin,” Lincoln uses only USDA approved bull testicles in
preparing the delicacy. Also known as Rocky Mountain Oysters,
the membrane is peeled, marinated in beer, breaded four times, and
deep fried to result in what appears to be a fat breaded pork
Haven’t got enough
yet? Be sure to pick up a Testicle Festival souvenir at the Rock
Lodge gift shop, which features everything from t-shirts to playing
cards to Testy Festy Hot Sauce.
