The Ten Ugly Men is a non-profit organization operated by, you guessed it, ten "ugly" men with a single goal in mind: to put on huge festivals and donate the proceeds to charity. As if the allure of unlimited amounts of chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, ice cream, and various other snacks wasn't enough of a draw by itself, the Ten Ugly Men Festival also features no shortage of sports activities. There's a "Color Me Ugly" 5K run — where runners are pelted with color-bombs — kickball and volleyball tournaments, and soon-to-be-announced live music happening all day long. All proceeds from the festival will go toward local charities, such as the Sojourner House at PathStone, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the Unity Health Oncology Center, and Equicenter.
The 25th Annual Ten Ugly Men Festival will take place Saturday, July 26, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., at the Genesee Valley Park, 1000 East River Road. Advance tickets are $25, and $35 the day of. Tickets for kids 13 to 20 are $10, kids 12 and under get in for free. For more information, visit tenuglymen.com
