All are welcome to join the RVA Beard League. Membership is open to all bipedal mammals who support facial hair, including the (in)voluntarily clean shaven. We proudly sport facial hair and believe that any guy who can grow it, should. Whether short or long, represent and grow whatever suits you best — that's all we ask.
It doesn't stop at guys, either. For our girlfriends, wives, and other crafty gals, there’s the RVA Whiskerinas. They use their imaginations and glue guns to create fun, creative and realistic beard and moustache styles and plan the occasional girls night out. There are plenty of exclusions in the world, and we'd rather bring together the people of Richmond with a common interest to make RVA an even better place to live.
Simply put, we abide by and support the 3 Cs: community service, charitable fundraising, and camaraderie. As a part of the greater national and international competitive bearding community (yes, there is such a thing), we want RVA and Virginia to be second to none.
We use Facebook as our primary and most immediate way to spread the word, but aside from that there are several ways to follow, friend, and otherwise get a hold of us.
