BEARFEST SA is back!  Bigger, Better and Burlier than ever!


After our highly successful run last year, BEARFEST SA is back with more fun, and more Bears, in the sun. Start your December with an amazing three days to make new friends, light new fires, or rekindle old flames. Three days to let go and feed the bear within.


BEARFEST SA brings together men of all shapes, colours, sizes, and furriness, in order to build and foster a stronger bear community and long lasting friendships.


The purpose of BEARFEST is very simple, to create a lasting memory of an event each summer, that you will remember for many years to come with a party that welcomes bears and bear-lovers from all over the world to participate in fun activities and a great weekend of making new friends.


This year you will join bears, cubs, otters, wolves & their admirers for:

  • More Poolside Games and prizes to be won
  • Gat Party to dance your ass off
  • 4th Annual Mr BEARFEST contest
  • Bigger Play Room
  • Expanded vendor market

Don't miss the opportunity to meet hot and friendly folks.


Not a bear? Not a problem! Come as you are. BEARFEST SA wants everyone to be able to become familiar with the bear scene. As long as you're friendly, fun and ready to have a ball you are more than welcome! 


Bookings will open in April and tickets are limited, so we recommend that you book early to avoid the disappointment felt by so many Bears last year.
