Turkey Testicle Festival, Huntley

Does anyone know if they really serve turkey testicles? Someone told me they were there a couple of days ago and they thought they were breading pieces of beef...

  1. I think they really are turkey. It's supposed to be a great festival.

    1. Yes, they really are turkey testicles. I was at the festival 2 years ago and plan on going again tomorrow. It's a great time!!! The testicles are found in the chest cavity of the bird. They are like the gizzards. They bread and deep fry them. The last time I had them they were very dry and needed some kind of dipping sauce. Here's the website.

        The 2008 Turkey Turkey Testicle Festival, Huntley will be Wednesday, November 26 2008. You can read the details at:

        1. It is a local fest - heated tents outside, bands, beer garden-esque. It usually gets pretty crowded. Going once was enough for me, though it was fun to try the testicles. (Proves you can deep fry anything!)
