Time to celebrate the beard

The Okanagan Beard Festival is back, opening with registration and first-round judging next week at Cannery Brewing.

The 12-week competition is a celebration of the bearded lifestyle with judging in 12 categories including; best, longest, thickest, most original, most creative beard and more.

The festival will also include a “best barber” category, as all competitors will be representing their respective barbers during the course of the competition. The barber with the most award-winning clients at the finale of the festival will earn bragging rights.

The five rounds of judging take place at various breweries, pubs and restaurants in Penticton, including Cannery Brewing Co., Craft Corner Kitchen, Nest & Nectar, and The Barking Parrot Bar. Winners will be announced April 30.

The Jan. 29 event runs from 6 to 9 p.m.

The registration fee is $25.00 (limited to 100 registrants). Net proceeds go to Penticton’s Discovery House, with over $5,000 raised to date.
