The 6th Annual Adirondack Donegal Beard Contest will take place 4 to 7 pm this Saturday, March 15th, at Basil & Wicks (formerly Casey’s North), Route 28, in North Creek, NY. The contest is open to beardsmen who were clean shaven on or after January 1, 2014 and have since grown a Donegal beard.
A Donegal beard is a traditional Irish beard that grows along the jaw line and covers the chin — no soul patch, no mustache. This year marks the contest’s sixth year. New beardsmen are welcome to take part in the event, which is free and open to the public. Judging begins at 6 pm. There will be beer specials, music by Finger Diddle, and corned beef and cabbage.
