Rodeo Association Hosting Twisted Nut Festival

For ten years, the Darby Rodeo Association has hosted “Tough Enough To Wear Pink,” a charity rodeo and bull-riding event that clad cowboys in pastel hues to raise cash for breast cancer charities. This year, they’re trying to do something for the guys as well with the “Twisted Nut Festival,” benefiting testicular cancer research.

The Montana-based rodeo is working within the state’s COVID-19 guidelines to host a fun and exciting event for all ages, bringing in bull riders wearing Twisted Nut bandannas that both cover their face and demonstrate their commitment to safety. The bulls brought in for the event are famed for being excitable and energetic without being too aggressive.

“Because of all the cancellations this summer we didn’t have trouble finding bull riders,” he said. “They are looking for places to ride. We want people to come enjoy themselves. We’ll have masks for them to wear if they want to wear them. We’ll have wash stations throughout the arena. We just want people to come if they want and have fun.”

If you’re in Darby this weekend, gates open at 5 p.m on Friday. and bull riding begins at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $15 for general admission, $10 for seniors and kids age 10 and under get in free.
