The next Bears Week Event takes place in May 2014. The “International Bears Meeting” is the little brother to the big event in September, but is also very busy. In 2014 the event takes place during the May bank holiday weekend so we suggest you book your hotel and apartment early to get the best rate and the best location.
The main parties will place in XXL, El Horno and Organic. The fun will invariably spill out onto the streets of Joan Tarrida in front of Bukkake and Ruby’s Bar.

This year the Sitges International Film Festival takes place from the 11th to the 20th of October. It is one of the largest Horror/Scifi movie festivals in the world attracting international stars, world premiers and more.
Some of the films on this year’s schedule are quite out there! However here are some of the ones we won’t be missing!
Interior: Leather Room
|[vimeo 55657401 w=570&h=380]|
In order to avoid an X rating, 40 minutes of gay S&M footage was rumored to be cut and destroyed from the 1980 film, “Cruising.” Inspired by the mythology of this controversial film, filmmakers James Franco and Travis Mathews collaborate to imagine their own lost footage.
Amid the backdrop of a frenzied film set actor Val Lauren reluctantly agrees to take the lead in the film. Val is repeatedly forced to negotiate his boundaries during scenes on and “off camera,” as unsimulated gay sex happens around him. The film itself is constructed as a play with boundaries remaining queer in subject and form. As much a film about filmmaking as it is about an exploration of sexual and creative freedom, “Interior. Leather Bar.” defies easy categorization.
Byzantium by Neil Jordan
Two decades after Interview with the Vampire, Neil Jordan returns to vampire movies. Two women, Clara and Eleonor, move to a hotel near the sea intending to keep the secret of their long-lived history. A history divided between two eras, and that bears the unavoidable signature of a subgenre master: romantic, gothic, seductive and bloody.
Sitges Carnival is one of the biggest Winter Carnival Celebrations in Europe and attracts more than 200,000 people to Sitges. While the weather may not be as warm as visitors remember from their Summer Visits, the atmosphere is electric with thousands of people dressed up in costume, lining the streets and watching one of the many parades that make their way through the town each night.
This year Sitges Carnival takes place a little later than normal with the festival beginning on Feb 25th 2014. The two biggest days are the Main Parade days of Sunday the 2nd and Tuesday the 4th of March 2014.
Check out some highlights of Sitges Pride 2013 below for an idea of what to expect!
Santa Tecla is one of Sitges most popular events. Although smaller than Fiesta Mayor, the event still has several large processions through the streets of Sitges.
The festival culminates in a stunning fireworks display over the beaches of Sitges on the 22nd of September.
The fireworks take place at 11pm. Get your space early, or book a Sitges Seafront Apartment for the best view.
This year’s Sitges Zombie Walk takes place on Saturday October 12th as part of Sitges International Film Festival. Those wishing to attend can get their make-up completed by professional make up artists and join in the fun from around 8pm. The Zombies will make their way from the Mayor’s building through the old town and descend onto the beaches and streets of Sitges bringing their usual frightening chaos.
Check out the video footage of the 2011 event. (Unfortunately last year the event barely too place due to a torrential rain storm that lasted the entire evening)
