Coventry will be holding its first beard and beer fest tomorrow

Ryan Smith 1st Jul, 2022

THERE will be plenty of hairy fun at the Fargo Village on Saturday in Coventry’s very first beard and beer fest.

The beard competition will be run by The Whiskered West Midlands, with entry donations going to Mind Coventry and Warwickshire.

The six-hour event will get underway at midday and will feature hand-crafted local beers and ciders and different types of street food.

Categories include ‘neat trimmed beard’, ‘moustache’ and ‘creative fake beard.’
