The beards will be front and centre during the 35th Beard Growing Contest. This year participants are competing in one of five categories: the Festival Beard category (participants were clean shaven on December 15 and 16 and have grown their beards since), the Voyageur Beard category (wild and woolly), the Novelty category (groomed mustache or beard), the Open category (contestants create and wear their own beards) as well as the Frosty Beard Face category (Contestants are asked to take a picture of their frosty winter beard and hashtag #FrostyHEHO for a chance to be crowned as the Frostiest Face in Winnipeg). Open to everyone over the age of 18! It should be a wild…and woolly one! To see the event rules or to register, click here.
