The world is opening up again and beard competitions are BACK, BABY!
You’ve had two years of Covid to either grow your championship beard or to get you excited about attending championships to be inspired by the best and baddest.
So, get your calendar and start booking your trips – because we’ve got the most epic beard championships featuring the ruggedest bros you’ve ever seen!
May 28, 2022! Head for Europe’s Beard Mecca, Amsterdam! What could be better than beers, buds and beards in this stunning city? This beard contest is simply not to be missed. Plus there will be burlesque shows, live music and tattoo parlors - all in the heart of one of the world’s great artistic centers. Cruise the canals, admire the architecture, drink in the beer, and marvel at all the facial glory.
After the 2020 event was cancelled, June 1st 2022 is almost here! Head to the Snowbird Resort in the breathtaking Wasatch Mountains of Utah for a truly amazing gathering of rugged brothers.
Backed by 60 beard clubs across the US and Canada, we expect this championship to feature hundreds of entrants from almost every state and province – plus plenty of overseas entrants.
Your hosts, the North American Competitive Beard & Moustache Alliance and the Salty Saints Social Club & Facial Hair Society are promising a family-friendly, four-day event that will raise big money for local charities. Every event is a simple walk from your accommodation.
There are categories for full beards, partial beard, moustaches – and even for fake beards of any kind. So bring the ladies and the kids!
Beards and bikes go together like Forrest Gump’s “peas and carrots”. And the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is the biggest and greatest gathering of both in the whole wide world.
2022’s awesomeness will rev up from August 5th to 14th in Sturgis, South Dakota. As of this writing, they don’t have all the beard contest details worked out yet, but like the sun coming up, it’s gonna happen. So stay tuned, keep your Hog tuned and keep your beard primed.

Not quite ready to strut your stuff in public yet? Wanna get your feet wet with a bit of experience and learning before branching out with your bristles?
Then enter yourself in the Beards of Hope online beard competition before August 22nd, 2022. It’s a simple matter of submitting photos of your beard and/or stache. The one that earns the most likes by September 2nd gets the prize …and the bragging rights.
By the way, it’s for an amazing cause, too – because to enter, you have to be registered as a Beards of Hope fundraiser. Not only do they have big beards, they have huge hearts as they raise money for families that have suffered the heartbreak of losing a baby.
If you’re foaming at the mouth waiting impatiently for the world’s premier beard competition, wipe your beloved beard and start preening for February 2023. And while you’re at it, brush up your Kiwi accent because the World Beard & Mustache Championships will be in Auckland, New Zealand!
Also, if you’re planning to strut your stuff in front of the judges, ensure you’re a member of an officially sanctioned beard club because that’s a condition of entry.
There are three broad categories – full beard, partial beard, and mustache – with a heap of sub-categories. So there’s no excuse for you to sit on the sidelines!
After the awesomeness on full display in September 2021, we’re waiting for word from the organizers to let us know where and when America’s National Beard Championship will be.
One of the great things about this contest is anybody can enter – no need to be a member of an official bearding club.
There’s no official word from the Spokane Beard and Mustache Club about 2022, but we’ve got our fingers and whiskers crossed that the Epic Beard Competition will happen. It’s an awesome contest with a real community feel and spirit that raises funds for amazing causes.
There you have it, man. After a Covid nightmare marathon, beard competitions are back – bigger, better and bushier than ever! It’s time to turn your isolation beard into bragging rights and cold hard cash!
If you’re gonna enter a beard championship, you need to prepare your fuzzy pride and joy. Like any competition, you gotta train. So be sure to check out our other blogs about good beard health and maintenance, plus get yourself stocked with the tools of the trade to primp and preen your grizzly glory. And if you have any questions or problems, drop us a line.
