The 2022 National Beard and Moustache Championships® are organized by Beard Team USA®. The purpose of the Nationals is to find and honor the best facial hair in America, but beardsmen from all over the world are invited to compete. A panel of distinguished judges will choose the best of the best in 45 categories ranging from the delicate Dali Moustache to the anything-goes Full Beard Freestyle. The competition is open to the public starting at 11:00 am and will continue into the evening until the last champion is awarded.

Booze and Bacon event hours are Saturday, November 12th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Doors will open at 10:30 am. Attendees will vote on their favorite food dish, beer, and drink. Trophies will be awarded to the people’s choice in each category. A limited amount of merchandise, packaged beer and liquor items will be available for purchase from the retail section at the event.
