The All-American Beardfest has made its way to Somerville yet again. Come get your fill of crazy hair twirling, moustache combing.

Join in for a fun creative hair contest Sunday, February 2 from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. at the Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Ave.  Contestants will vie for prizes in 5 categories: natural full beard, free-style full beard, free-style moustache, free-style partial beard, (which includes goatees, sideburns and any other creative combination of the above), and for follicle challenged, best fake beard.

Food and drink, scratchy music with DJ Pace, whimsical prizes for our contestants, a make-your-own beard table, and a room full of artistic facial hair–what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
