- Grow your most amazing beard or style your most fantastic mustache and register for the appropriate category
- If you want to go all out and crazy, we also have a Best In Show category! Use your flair and stage presence! Nipple tassels encouraged.
- Stand in front of the audience and judges with your most comical, sexy, or boring seriousness imaginable and show off the cultivation you've put into that facial hair. Try to have at list a smidgen of personality.
- Drink beer, listen to music, and have fun.
Each contestant will be judged on with a 10-point scale (higher being better, this isn't golf). Each contestant will have their “moment in the sun” where they will come up to the stage when their name is called. They will meet the crowd and will be asked a question or two and then stop in front of the judges for a personal inspection. When finished they will line up to face the crowd.
Once all the judges have finalized each card, we will collect the cards and tally the scores. The 2nd and 1st place winners will be announced after the intermission. This process is repeated until the contest is completed. Note, presentation refers to the contestant’s overall appearance and effort put in to their beard and outfit, and crowd response is self-explanatory. Again, nipple tassels.
The Best Styled Mustache category:
Mustache hair is the slowest growing facial hair. Length shows a commitment to the competitor’s mustache. Sideburns cannot be lower than earlobes and no additional facial hair is permitted on the jaw or lower lip. You will be judged on the shape of the mustache as well as the density and length.
Crowd Response 1-5
The Best Natural Beard category:
This is for all of our bearded brethren and there is no minimum or maximum length. Beards grow at approximate 1/2” per month so it takes about a year to get to 6 inches. Beards should be groomed and contestants can leave the mustache natural or they can style it with products. Natural coloring is also permitted.
Crowd Response 1-5
The highlight of the event is the Best In Show category. First & Second place winners in each category will come to the stage where the emcee will ask a series of questions while the judges and audience review their styles once again. During this time the judges will discuss amongst themselves and decide based on consensus who will be the Best In Show Winner.
Please note that registration begins an hour and thirty minutes PRIOR to the event’s start time. Registration ends 15 minutes BEFORE each category’s time. for example, if your category starts at 5PM, registration will start at 4PM and end at 4:45PM.
