On November 26, Churchill Downs will host a “’Stache Bash” to honor and celebrate all the Mo Bros (and Mo Sistas – female supporters) who participated in Movember by growing a mustache during the month. The Churchill Downs celebration will take place throughout the race day in the Paddock featuring live music by popular Cincinnati-based My Sister Sarah and Happy Hour drink specials from 3 - 5 p.m.
Anyone who grew a mustache in support of Movember, can get a clean shave by Joseph's Salon starting at 2 p.m. and $1 of their general admission will be donated to the Movember Foundation for their support in the initiative.
