Got a world-class beard or moustache? You need to be in Portland, Oregon on October 25 for the 2014 Just for Men World Beard and Moustache Championships®. The competition takes place at the spectacular, 3,000-seat Keller Auditorium in downtown Portland. Hundreds of the world’s best beardsmen will put the art of facial hair on display in the most entertaining and creative competition ever to hit the Northwest.
Even if you don’t have world-class facial hair, you’ll still have a great time at the event. From delicate Dali moustaches to anything-goes full beard freestyles and medal-worthy sideburns, this competition represents the full spectrum of beard and mustache art with 17 categories. The Grand Prize? An all-expense paid trip to the 2015 world championships in Leogang, Austria!
“The Just For Men World Beard and Moustache Championships® is one of the most lively and inspired events you will ever witness,” said Lay It Out Events Producer Aaron Switzer. “The world championships is an event people have on their bucket list, you have to see it to believe it.”
