A Testicle Festival is an event held at several small towns in which the featured activity is the consumption of animal testicles, usually battered and fried.[1] The oldest such festival takes place in Byron, Illinois,[2] and features turkey testicles. Similar festivals are held in Deerfield, Michigan; Olean, Missouri; Tiro, Ohio; Oakdale, California; Huntley, Illinois; Stillwater, Oklahoma;[3]Salmon, Idaho[4] and Clinton, Montana, some of which feature cattle testicles.[5][6] The three-day Testicle Festival in Fargo, North Dakota was the site of a 2001 riot, leading to seven arrests.[7][8]

The Montana State Society has held an annual 'Rocky Mountain Oyster Festival' in Arlington, Virginia since 2005.[9]

Every year in September the villages of Ozrem and Lunjevica in the municipality of Gornji Milanovac, Serbia, hosts the World Testicle Cooking Championship.[10][11] The festival serves up a variety of testicles, including wildlife. It also gives awards for "ballsy" news makers. U.S. President Barack Obama and pilot Chesley Sullenberger won awards in 2010.[12]
