Do you have a beard?  Do you like beards?  Join in with other beard fans for the 6th Whispering Beard Folk Festival in Friendship, Indiana for the weekend long party of picking, singing, and dancing beards.  The outdoor show features traditional folk music to preserve and inspire fans young and old, from the soil in bluegrass and soul-possessed country singers to banjo-playing brothers and fiddling sisters, all coming together as a community.  The fun will include delicious food including Eli’s BBQ and J. Damon’s Wood Fired pizza, over 25 artisan vendors, camping, and of course a fantastic music lineup composed of local, regional, and national talent to get your beard grooving.
