It’s A Bear Fiesta !

With Summer just starting, one of Bristol’s big scene events – The Bristol Bear Fiesta, is coming to town.

Taking place from 2nd to 4th June, the weekend-long social brings hundreds of guys into the city to sample the local delights and sights as well as some specially organised events with a theme, this years being an Army one “Privates on Parade”.

Now in it’s 14th year, the weekend proves popular with both those that have been to previous events, and those who have never been to Bristol before. The event can also boast to be award winning as in 2015 and 2017 ‘Bristol Bear Fiesta and Southern HiBearnation’ won ‘Best Men’s Event’ in the ShoutOut Awards.

Kicking off on Friday 6th, the Bristol Bear Fiesta starts as always our home for the weekend is the Bristol Bear Bar which opens at 7pm for the customary start of the weekend – the Meet & Greet launch party. Bristol Bear Bar’s resident award-winning DJ, DJ Daddi will host a special BBF14 version of his ever-popular Pop Nation night with all the usual camp, pop, cheesiness that entails so start the weekend with a party that will last into the early hours of Saturday morning!

On Saturday the day start’s with Bristol Bear Bars’ Bear Fiesta Market and Social Hub. The bar will be open all afternoon from 2pm as they host our popular event market and will be joined by local businesses with beary goods plus LGBT support organisations so pop along to browse, enjoy an afternoon refreshment and relax in good company.
Stalls include Hartzak, My Only Vice, Prism and Illustrate

After the market the bar will stay open all night as they host the second night of Bristol Bear Fiesta with a special edition of their monthly club night – HARNESS – Privates On Parade Special. Harness is a bespoke club night, an LGBT+ fetish social where everyone is welcome. There is no dresscode but military uniform or similar theme encouraged tonight for the weekends theme, with or without a HARNESS!. Club classics, dance, funky tunes and a bit of cheese with DJ Daddi at the helm again until the early hours of Sunday morning – a fun night of music and the main night of the weekend!

Sundays are always a relaxing wind-down part of the bear weekends after the long Friday and Saturday nights and gives a chance to rest and enjoy the beautiful city of Bristol. There is plenty to see and do around the city and if you are still with us in the evening be sure to join us from 5pm onwards when the Bristol Bear Bar opens for the final night of the Bristol Bear Fiesta weekend with RAVEN lite – the pre-party, no dress code, social “little brother” of RAVEN (Bristol’s premier monthly fetish party for men).
