The Ithaca Beard and Mustache Club presents the Chili 'Stache and Beard Competition. We will be in our usual spot in Bank Alley on the Ithaca Commons. The rumor has it that we may be near a beer tent!
We are working on a category for the ladies, we want to include our "Sans Barbe" friends. It will be a fake beard category and you can make it what you want...long, short, wild, pointy, scary, or funny. We hope this can come together!
Our categories can be found here on our Events page. There will be a suggested donation of $7, which can be paid at the time of the competition. You'll get a free sticker, too! Who loves stickers? Proceeds will be donated to a local non-profit organization.
More surprises to come later!
