What is Beardtoberfest?

 

Beardtoberfest is the only Star Wars themed Beard and Moustache competition around and it’s brought to you by Cape Beard: Follicles of Freedom! This will be our fifth (5th) Beardtoberfest and will be subtitled: The Follicles Awaken. Next year we will not be featuring a Star Wars theme so come join us and put your bid in on various Star Wars themed pieces that we will be auctioning off.

For those of you new to Beard and Moustache competitions you are encouraged, but definitely not forced to compete if you do sport some magnificent facial hair. All proceeds from the event will go to The Karen-Chandler Trust, but not just the proceeds from the competition or door, but all the money that Cape Beard brings in, so don’t be shy and throw down on some raffle tickets!

That’s Right! Beard and Moustache fans, the most exciting Beard & Moustache Competition in the galaxy is back!!!!
Cape Beard presents “Beardtoberfest – Episode VI: The Force Unshaven” with 100% of proceeds benefitting The Karen Chandler Trust! As usual, $15 to get in, free to compete!!!!!

All Proceeds earned at Beardtoberfest will be donated to:

The Karen Chandler Trust is named for a local NC musician who lost her battle with breast cancer in 1999. Before her death, fellow musicians held a benefit to help Chandler meet her financial needs. The trust was established after Chandler’s death to help others in our community deal with the financial burden of living with cancer.

     “For example, if a person needs chemotherapy and they have to go out of town for treatment, the trust will help supplement the family so they can go with their family member. They fill a lot of gaps where families can fall through the cracks when insurance doesn’t pay for everything,”
