The North American Competitive Beard and Moustache Alliance (NACBMA) invites you to be a part of one of North America’s largest charity facial hair competitions.


Join us September 29th in Richmond, Virginia for the 2018 Great American Beard & Moustache Championship! 

Every even-numbered year, the GABMC showcases a diverse spectrum of facial hair styles, including handcrafted categories so that everyone — including women, children, and the (in)voluntarily shaven — can participate. 

100% of the proceeds raised from the GABMC are donated to charity.  We have chosen both a national charity, the Humane Society of the U.S., and a local charity, the Pink Ink Fund, as beneficiaries of the event.
