Think your beard is the best? You won’t know for sure until you enter the First Annual National Baby Food Festival Beard Competition. Prove to others that your beard is the best! Sponsored by Snipperz and co-sponsored by LLV.
Judging will be held on Saturday, July 23 at 11:30am at the Community Stage, East Main Street, Downtown Fremont, MI.
The judging criteria is based on health, thickness, color, and length of the facial hair, in addition to how well it enhances the competitor's overall look. Presentation matters!
Contestants will be graded on a classic 10-scale, with each judge giving out one 10, one 9.5, and one 9 to their top three picks in every category. It's a facial hair competition. The rules are simple: show up on time, be in the right category. It goes without saying, but artificial hair is grounds for disqualification. Leave the weave at home.
For the sake of time, categories are capped at 40 entrants on a first-come, first-served basis. Styling aids which help shape the hair including wax, hairspray, gel, scotch tape or whatever else you choose to use. Wires are not permitted.
All hair on the face counts toward your category. If you rock wicked mutton chops with that 'stache, that counts as a partial beard. When you show up you will be pre-judged to make sure you're in the right category, so make sure to register for the category that fits best.
6 categories will run the gamut from Partial Beard to Full Beard, and Freestyle, there's a place for everyone! Check the categories below and choose the one that's most appropriate for you. If you aren't sure, get the one that fits the closest and we'll help you find the right category on the day of.
