Event Details

A Young Filsonians event

         Come for an evening of signature bourbon drinks that will put hair on your chest. This event will include a barbershop quartet featuring members of the Kentucky Vocal Union men’s chorus, additional music provided by local musicians, pre-code Hollywood movies, and photographer in The FilsonPhotobooth, and images from our Collections showcasing brimming beards and muscular mustaches.

          At 8 p.m. all are welcome in the Hair Contest with categories such as Best Mustache, Best Beard, and Best Hairstyle. At 9 p.m. there will be an expert describing featured hairstyles found in The Filson’s Collections. Beginning at 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. we will have storytellers sharing hair-raising tales based in our collections, most notably the story of Peg Chenoweth, who survived being scalped. In addition to the activities and music, we will have complimentary catering by Farm to Fork, beer, wine, and a signature bourbon cocktail for the evening.


$5 for members, $10 for non-members.

Space is limited, reservations required.
