Style, Info, Fun - A Moustache Paradise!

The International Moustache Film Festival in Portland Maine March 29 2013

All Moustache Films? This would be so cool to see!

“Last year, in 2012, agreeing with Stache groupies united (a nonprofit yet to be formed?), we needed a bigger venue, so we shot for the heart of the arts district in Portland: Port City Music Hall. We initiated VIP entry, incorporated a film festival, added a full-on catwalk, and hooked DJ Tim D up to PCMH’s state-of-the-art sound system. The result? Nearly 500 tickets sold (about 65 percent of those to women), and the place was veritable moustache petting zoo… with beer.

With the help of Creative Content Partners on the event planning, we’re not so sure what this year’s Pag will bring, but this moustache train is picking up speed. Care to come along for the ride?”
