beardoff_stickerSince 2010, the Minnesota Beard-Off has been the biggest, rowdiest beard and mustache contest in the Midwest. Audience members cheer on their favorite bearded men and fake-bearded ladies and the hairiest faces in the land compete for prizes and, more importantly: glory.

The contest is split into four categories: full beard, partial beard, mustache, and freestyle. In the freestyle category, anything goes: crazy styled beards, fake beards on men and women–even dogs! The contestants are then evaluated by a panel of judges and the top three winners are chosen in each category. The judges also name an overall winner, who earns the title of Minnesota (or Wisconsin) Beardsman.

In 2012 The Beard-Off came to Wisconsin and is now an annual, growing (heh heh) event in both Minneapolis and Madison. You can read about it, or keep an eye on the calendar for the next contest!
