Burtucky Days: Where Rednecks Come Out to Play

Burtucky Days: Where Rednecks Come Out to Play

See why our Burtucky event is such a hit in Burton, MI

Let your inner redneck run wild in Burton, MI. Greg Benjamin, the owner of Captain's Quarters Lounge, started what's become the annual Burtucky event and it is now a community affair.

Burtucky Days is a three-day adults-only drinking festival in September. A $5 wristband is your ticket to all the fun. Proceeds go to the Old Newsboys of Flint, a local organization that provides Christmas presents to children in need.

What's a Burtuckian?

Back in the day, General Motors brought workers from Kentucky to Burton, Michigan. Burtuckians might be Michigan residents, but they haven't lost touch with their Southern roots.

More than 1,000 Burtuckians and their loved ones attend our Burtucky event to enjoy a good time, redneck style.

Come on out for Burtucky Day games

Get ready for all kinds of redneck fun, like...

  • Crowning a redneck king and queen
  • Playing horseshoes with toilet seats and cornhole with corn-on-the-cob
  • Watching SPAM carving contest participants go ham with their meat sculptures

Be sure to drop by for Chicken Drop Bingo.


Don't miss the Burtucky Open, which kicks off the drinking festival a week before the Burtucky Day games. Participants must...

  • Bring only three golf clubs
  • Putt with a croquet mallet or pool stick
  • Deck out their golf carts to compete for prizes

Proceeds go to the North End Soup Kitchen. In the first two years, we raised $11,000 for our community.
