The 2018 Ballarat Beard & Stache Competition

As part of The Ballarat Heritage Weekend, The Ballarat Beard and Stache Competition is back!
At the end of the month Ballarat are giving people that chance to enjoy some spectacular staches and beards, celebrating all kinds of facial hair.
You can enter your stach-tacular beards in any applicable category. Think moustache, full beard, partial beard or the verdi (an impeccably groomed beard style). There is also a “just for fun category,” where you can play around with fake beards or freestylers.
And ladies you can get involved too! Be bold and brave and enter your fake/real/anything in between beards and moustaches.
Don’t forget about live music, food and drink for competitors and spec-tach-tors. So be a part of the Ballarat Beard and Stache Competition, Saturday May 26, at the Hop-temple from noon. With four categories to be judged (and more than $1000 in cash and prizes up for grabs) you’re going to want to get involved.
Shave your if’s and but’s for later. Even if beards aren’t your thing, this event will definitely have them grow on you.
Register your facial hair here.
The competition is just one of many events being held throughout the weekend of May 26 and 27. The 2018 Heritage Weekend will also celebrate the evolution of technology over the last century, while continuing to pay tribute to Ballarat’s unique landscape, streetscape and history with a range of events including virtual reality tours, horse-and-carriage rides, vintage fashion shows and classic car displays.
