After a successful 2017 event at the world-famous and historic Ohio State Reformatory, Beards of the Old Northwest is taking you back to prison for “Beards Behind Bars 2” this coming Saturday, June 30 from 5 PM to 11 PM.

Walk the same halls as history’s most infamous prisoners. Immerse yourself into the foundation that formed “The Shawshank Redemption.” Hunt for the paranormal on the Reformatory grounds!

Proceeds will go to benefit The Ohio State Reformation Society and The North End Community Improvement Collaborative.

Get the orange jumpsuit ready, and prepare for another wild night in prison! Please note that THIS IS AN AGE 13 AND UP EVENT. This is mostly because of safety concerns of the actual prison itself. Everyone is required to have a ticket as well, regardless of age. Thank you for your understanding.

Tickets are $25.00 for both competitors and spectators and also include a tour of the Ohio State Reformatory at no additional charge – and can be purchased at this location online.

  • Styled Mustache
  • Partial Beard Freestyle
