27th Annual Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry

March 17 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

This St. Patrick’s Day is going to be nuts! Have a ball, or two, in historic Virginia City joining 7,000 other daring revelers for a party that only the Comstock could throw. Sample tasty testes from cooks competing for the title of Best Rocky Mountain Oyster Cook in the West!

Dress in your most outlandish St. Patty’s Day garb, walk in the parade, join the costume contest and get in on the Ballbreaker Saloon Crawl. This full-on Irish testicle festival is the place to be for St. Patrick’s Day, complete with music and the most outlandish St. Patrick’s Day atmosphere found west of the Mississippi.

To purchase tasting packages in advance here.

Cooks from around the west fry, smoke or grill these delectable concoctions in a way that will make you forget what you’re really eating. Go balls out and try them all. Or perhaps sign up to cook up a tasty teste batch and compete in our contest. This year, the prize purse is bigger. Come on, we’ve got the balls, do you? Register as a cook by filling out the Cooks Application here.

Wash down those tasty testes with a refreshing beverage as part of the Ball Breaker Saloon Crawl. Your cup grants you one free beer and a variety of samples at Virginia City’s participating historic saloons. All crawl participants receive discounts on full specialty drink orders. Purchase your cup today. Designated drivers will receive a special cup.
