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 new website for the Huntley Turkey Testicle Festival is http://www.huntleyturkeytesticlefesti...

        2. 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!)
