"A Handlebar Moustache is indeed a glorious facial hair feature. Whether it stands alone or crowns some other form of facial hair, the glory comes from it being a 'Handlebar' and not simply an ordinary moustache." - Schnauzer

The World Beard and Mustache Competition will be on September 1st-3rd and will be hosted by the Austin Facial Hair Club (AFHC).
https://www.austinfacialhairclub.com/
as seen in the Bearding documentary series "Whisker Wars". Some American Beard growers are followed on their intersecting paths to Whiskered glory! the first season leads up to the WBMC 2011 in Norway. The Austin Facial Hair Club is a prominent part of the shows and the first season documents their entry into the World Beard and Moustache Association with the dreams of someday hosting the WBMC in Austin Texas.

The Austin Facial Hair Club has hosted a local contest called "Come And Shave IT" (CASI) for the last 11 years. It has grown into a huge event in it's own right, with people coming from all of the world to compete. Come And Shave It is a play on an early flag in Texas from the first battle for Texas independence from Mexico in 1835.

the AFHC has it's own rebellious streak like you might expect from Texans Beardsmen.

The WBMC will be held at the Long Center, which also hosts things like concerts, operas, and Broadway plays. The following link should allow you to see inside the main hall.

I have heard form some of the organizers, that there will be food trucks parked all around the City Terrace, as well as everything going on inside. (the following link shows views of the city from the Terrace)

There will be the 6 official Mustache categories for us Handlebar types. You can find registration and hotel information on the AFHC website.
There is still time to register and plan your trip to Austin Texas if you want to compete or attend as a spectator.
Registration end on August 1st :border:
