When in use with a mouse, it's CTRL-click. For keyboard only, it's.... hmmm.... actually there isn't one. You'd have to do a little hackery to get around this. For starters, here's what "may" be a complete or near-complete list of keyboard shortcuts in OS X:
Dan Rodney's List of Mac OS X Keyboard Shortcuts & Keystrokes

Now, to set a keyboard shortcut to bring up a context menu. The simplest way that comes to mind is using a macro app like Keyboard Maestro. For example, I just created a new workflow category that is "always active", then an action triggered by CMD-F15. Pressing that combo would simulate a click of the right-mouse button at the current cursor location. See screen cap for example:
