Rocky Mtn Oyster & Red Dirt Festival

The Montrose County Event Center invites you to have a ball, or two, at the inaugural Rocky Mountain Oyster & Red Dirt Music Festival in Montrose, Colorado on Saturday, April 24th.  Join us in recognizing the county’s agricultural heritage with live music and fun while enjoying a western delicacy known as cowboy caviar, prairie oysters, calf fries, or rocky mountain oysters.

Nuts aside, the festival will also feature red dirt country music.  Best described as a mix of folk, rock, country, bluegrass, blues and honky-tonk music, red dirt music is often referred to as country music with a little bit of attitude.  Headlining this year’s event will be the Sam Cox Band.

Beyond the bull fries and red dirt music, the festival will include the one-and-only Gonad Championships.  Teams will be auctioned off at the start of the night and then will compete in a “nut inspired” obstacle course.   Both the winning team and winning buyer will walk away with a portion of the auction proceeds.

We say “grab life by the balls” and get your tickets early!

The event is finished.
