The 2nd Annual Okanagan Beard Festival kicks off with the registration and first-round judging event on Monday, January 16th from 6pm until 9pm, at Cannery Brewing Co. (198 Ellis Street, Penticton, BC).

This fun and friendly, 13-week competition & celebration of the bearded lifestyle will include judging in 12 categories:

In addition to these 12 categories, a new element is being added to this year’s festival – the “Battle of the Barbers”. Competitors will be representing their respective barbers during the entire competition – the barber with the most award-winning clients will earn bragging rights as top barber.
