Beard and Moustache Contest 22′

Who: Men of great honor with facial hair

What: This contest started with the very first Nibley Heritage Days and disappeared oddly enough when beards were not in style, and has been back since 2018 and even survived COVID-19 with the virtual edition of the contest.  This is a longstanding tradition in our community of honor, tradition and mutual respect that inspires the peach fuzz youth of our day.

Where: Elkhorn Park Pavilion 750 W 2600 S, Nibley, UT 84321

Why: To inspire the youth of our community. (and maybe win stuff)

How: See rules, contest tips, and prizes tabs for details 



  • Have Facial Hair
  • Check in at the info booth and ask for a beard contest entry card at Noon.

  • Attend the contest at Heritage Days Family Festivities (Elkhorn Park Pavilion) at 12:30 pm on June 18th
  1. Part of this contest is the facial hair and part of it is the presentation
  2. The bearded, stashed, or stubbled participant does not have to present themself. If you are a little shy, consider writing something up for the emcee to read to tell your story. You do have to be present at the contest for the judges to view you in all of your glory.
  3. This is no time to be humble or shy about your greatness. Think of the values you represent Tradition – Honor – Respect. Consider expressing why you have facial hair.
  4. Consider telling a real or made up story of your beard, or stach. Share a good story even if it is not true, unless the actual facts are more compeling.
  5. While you have up to 90 seconds your story may require far less to communicate. There may be some strategy here.
