Cape Beard: Follicles of Freedom, Beard & Mustache Club

Cape Beard is a non-profit Beard & Moustache Club of Fayetteville NC who have been promoting the accolades of facial hair since 2011. Our members, specializing in many trades, utilize their various skills to better our local community. With increased support within our city we are gaining momentum with each charity event. It is our families, local-businesses, and you – our friends that enable us to accomplish our successes. As one of the largest facial hair clubs in North Carolina, you helped us raise over $207,000, receive a proclamation from the City of Fayetteville, and most importantly, IMPROVE OUR COMMUNITY!

Our History


Club Formation

Cape Beard: Follicles of Freedom was formed by the original group of 10 members.

First Pig Pickin', Show Us Your Cans, & Beardtoberfest

Cape Beard begins its charity event schedule with the first iteration of an annual beard competition called Beardtoberfest. Beardtoberfest began without the star wars theme everyone knows today. Show Us Your Cans and Pig Pickin’ also made their debut in 2012.



Beardtoberfest Adopts Star Wars Theme

During the second official Beardtoberfest planning Cape Beard decided to go with a Star Wars theme, gifted to us from the Savannah Beard Club, and started numbering the Beardtoberfest events accordingly.

First Bearded Beauties & Dunk-A-Beard

2014 saw the introduction of two new events to the Cape Beard charity repertoire. Bearded Beauties showcases some of our members crossdressing and performing to raise money for charity while Dunk-A-Beard allows families the opportunity for fun during the hot summer days!
