Beard Moustache Competition Barba e Baffi Grottglie
When & Where The Beard Moustache Competition is a traditional Italian festival which usually takes place around the first week of August in the village of Grottaglie on the Salento Peninsula in Puglia in Italy.
What to Expect The grossest facial on the face of the planet ! Just playing- since the dawn of time man has worshipped the facial hair not because razors weren't invented but because they represent wisdom and exude good taste. Puglia pays host to the European Championship for such hair. There's lots to admire as facial art forms and mis-stylings collide for this facial hair competition. The moustache contest features popular catagories like Hungarian, English gent, Garibaldi and Dahli. Beyond the beard competition there's also music stages and food stalls available for bearded and the non-bearded alike.
Things to consider Style, shape and length of any entry.

History: Barba e Baffi
HistoryThis Italian Beard & moustache festival is old. Old enough to grow a long beard, that is all we are willing to say about this. However please consider that as you read these words somewhere in Italy is a very vain man grooming himself for the competition.
