The Philadelphia Beard Festival took place Sunday, April 29 at the Schmidt’s Commons in Northern Liberties. Only in its second year, the festival celebrates all things beard-related.
Attendees could have their beard professionally groomed, buy beard-grooming supplies, or participate in the “Epic Beard Contest” all while drinking craft beers and spirits. The event also featured live music, food, games, and beard-related vendors — including a beard-themed art stand. For those with facial hair, the beard festival was a place to show off different styles and share grooming techniques. Philadelphia was the perfect spot to host the festival, as the city is considered the most beard-friendly city in the nation, according to Wahl Clipper Corp, an electric razor company which sponsored the festival.
