Let's Party!
Come celebrate the end of Summer vacation the AFHC way! With the 8th Annual "Beard To School" Party! Saturday August, 27th, 2pm - 6pm at The Brixton. We will be manning the grill and serving up some delicious FREE food! There will be fantastic drink specials from our friends at Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey! Join us for one last hoorah before we all have to go back to the real world.


Official Registration/Sign up for our annual 6 Month Sprint Shave Off... With a twist! Do you know a guy that can grow a fast, mean beard? We've got a chance for them to prove that they can grow 6 months of beard bigger and/or better than anyone else! Our 6 Month Beard Sprint will challenge faces from Austin and all over the Country to put their beard where their mouth is, literally.

Now for the twist! With The World Beard And Moustache Championships just one year away we are adding on a second half to our traditional 6 month sprint. Introducing the Year Long Sprint to Worlds!! Instead of trimming that beautiful new 6 month beard, or switching to a different style, competitors will continue letting it grow for an additional 6 months. Then at World's, they will unveil that bearding milestone, the yeard (year long beard)!
