Gentlemen ... start your whiskers!
The Next Nevada Day Beard Contest is
The Beard Contest location has changed! This year it's being held at 308 N Curry Street, on the main stage in the south parking lot of the the Old Citibank Building (just Southwest of Telegraph Square, near Famfest.)
The Nevada Day Beard Contest - an annual tradition - is open to anyone with a beard. There is no entry fee, and admission is free to all who'd like to come watch. It is held immediately following the Nevada Day Parade, starting sometime between 1:00pm to 2:00pm. The contest usually begins with Cowboy Poet, Tony Argento reciting cowboy poetry, and then the contest begins, with judging by a local-celebrity panel, including some Nevada Supreme Court Judges. Plaques are awarded in the following categories:
*Based on the judges discretion, the winner of longest beard must have a considerable number of hairs at the longest length to win.
