The 2015 World Beard Championships & 125th anniversary of the Leogang Band

A hairy affair: Moustaches, goatees, beards, and muttonchops

October 2 to 4, 2015 in Saalfelden Leogang, Austria

Things will be getting hairy in Saalfelden Leogang from October 2 to 4, 2015. For three days, participants from 20 countries will compete in eighteen categories at the World Beard Championships. More than 350 bearded persons from all corners of the world — United States, Russia, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and Spain — have registered for this event. A jury will choose the most attractive, original, and inventive beards in categories such as “moustache,” “goatee,” “muttonchops,” and “full beard.” A concert by the Krainerwind band will kick off the event on Friday. Featuring an exciting social program, the World Beard Championships will take place on Saturday. On Sunday, the Leogang Band will celebrate its 125th anniversary with a parade of championship participants and local clubs. Several bands from outside of Leogang will also perform in concerts. Leogang was previously the venue for the Beard Olympics in 2005. In 2010, the European Beard and Moustache Championships also took place in town. “I am expecting strong competitors with unusual beards in Saalfelden Leogang this year,” says Wilhelm Preuss, the president of the East Bavarian Beard Club. “We will see where beards grow the fastest.”
