Sitges Bears Week in May

The International Bears Week takes place on the last weekend of April/The First Weekend in May. The events have included paintballing, special dinners, beach meetings and pool parties. The event kicks off with a welcome reception at XXL… the main activities centre around the bars at Joan Tarrida, however the entire Village is full of bears so practically all of the bars in the village are full. The event is one of the most popular bears meeting in Spain and attracts a large international audience.

The bank holiday in 2019 falls later than normal, so the event will run into the first week of May right up to the Sunday the 5th. The itinerary below is based on the previous event and will be updated as soon as it is available.
