The Montana State Society’s annual Rocky Mountain Oyster Festival, better known as the Testicle Festival, is classing it up this year with a new moniker: “A Royal Ball.”

The price of a ticket, $25 online or $30 at the door, will buy you “all the Rocky Mountain Oysters, beer and Crown Royal you can handle,” organizers say.

According to a Facebook event, the “Testy Fest” will again be held at the Arlington American Legion Post in Virginia Square, from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. on May 18. Attendees must be at least 21.

Entertainment will be provided by the Will Gravatt Band, while the testicles will be fried by Frank McGraw, who’s billed as “Montana’s most famous ball chef,” the press release reads.

“Coming to us straight from the original Rocky Mountain Testy Fest at Rock Creek Lodge outside of Missoula, Frank’s tasty recipe has an authentic zest that helped set a record last year for most pounds consumed,” according to the Montana State Society website.

According to ARL Now, festival-goers in Arlington consumed 110 pounds of bull and bison testicles, 84 liters of Crown Royal and 1,500 cans of beer last year.
