Travel Info

Whether coming in from Williamsburg, New York or Williamsburg, Virginia, here’s where you need to head. The 3rd Annual Mid-Atlantic Beard & ‘Stache Championships will be held at The Canal Club in Richmond’s Shockoe Bottom district. 

The Canal Club is right off of Interstate 95. The main entrance is on 17th Street, between Cary & Dock Streets, near the corner with Cary Street. 


This year we’re also awarding a Longest Beard” trophy and prize pack with RVA-only items for the competitor who has traveled the furthest distance to compete!


Often people go solo to charity facial hair competitions and which can make it too expensive to travel. We put together a form as a way of playing matchmaker for people from different cities or states to share accommodations and split the price between them. Head to our Room Sharing Form if you're interested in splitting the cost of a room with someone! We can't guarantee you'll get a spot, but we can at least try and get the ball rolling.
