INSIDE THE MAIN EVENT: Beard Appreciation Event

Sat September 11, 3:15 pm

The Festival’s Beard Appreciation Event is creating a buzz at the Main Event, on Saturday 11 September.


All beards are welcome (even the folically challenged, haha!)

  • The Nurtured (natural, but groomed)
  • The Big and Bushy (the ungroomed bush)
  • The Craft Beard (freestyle or faux)
  • The Metro (designer stubble
  • The Mo (no chin hair)
  • Beard in the Back (the mullet!)
  • The Wannabeard (bumfluff or starter kit).


Special guest of honour will be Dalase Schilling, who won our online beard competition in Dec/Jan and took out the best Big & Bushy Beard Category win!


Nearby, the ‘Craft Beer Garden’ will feature live music, plus a really impressive selection of Aussie brews.  Those keen on a good gin can also enjoy a selection of craft gins.  …More about Craft Beer Garden.

Beard Season – Skin Check Champions will be at the festival too!

Get your skin checked with Skin Check Champions at the festival.

‘Beard Season’ is a non profit charity championing the early detection of melanoma – Australia’s national cancer. It started back in 2010 after our mate died from a suss looking spot on his neck at the age of 26. Since then, we’ve been growing our beards from the 1st of June until the 31st of August. Using them as ruggedly handsome billboards for early detection, inspiring our friends and family to get a skin check with a GP or dermatologist.
