We are a membership led organization led by approximately 30 Battle Creek residents. You don't have to have a moustache. The stache is the gimmick. We create events and often raise money for charity. “Changing the Face of Charity, right under your noses.”

Mission Statement

The Battle Creek Metropolitan Area Moustache Society (BCMAMS) is a volunteer-based non-profit organization focused on raising money for local people or organizations in need, through coordinating and organizing fun events at local establishments or venues.

2018 Raft Race

The 6th Annual BCMAMS 2018 Raft Race was another success! The weather wasn't perfect, but we still had a great turnout from the community.

The raft race in the Battle Creek river had rafts, inflatables, and a lot of smiling faces. With the help of the Battle Creek Fire Department we even had an occasional rain shower, heavy at times

Raft Race

Raft Race

Do you quack like a duck? Do you want to? Float down the Kalamazoo, while enjoying live music or race to the end for a major award. Pie-eating and yard games along the river.



Who puts on a one-day, multi-stage music festival with too many music genres to list? MAMS do. This is the place to see all your favorite Michigan bands in one beautiful setting.
