There will be no “Bear Village” by the sea front this year due to the restrictions implemented by the local government. However many bears are still visiting during this time.
Sitges Bears week in September is one of the biggest and most popular Bear festivals in Europe attracting more than 5,000 visitors, bears, admirers, chasers, muscle bears and more. The “Bear Village” may be on the paseo, but the bears are everywhere – Sitges is transformed into a bear heaven for 12+ days.
Covid 19 update
July 21st – Orgnisers have decided not to host any official events for the Bear week 2020. As such the Bear Week has been cancelled. There will be no “bear-village” on the seafront.
Many bears have decided they will visit Sitges despite the cancellation and so the beaches and bars will still be relatively busy in September.
Many others have decided to move their trip to the 2021 event which runs from Sept 3rd to 11th 2021.We have great rates with our partners and many are fully refundable. Book your hotel early.
(Previous years events were as follows)
Sitges Bears Week has grown from a group of bears wanting to have a party to an international event that fills the town of Sitges during the first two weeks of September. There are parties and events held throughout the entire village. There is also a dedicated bears village by the beach with shows, dj’s and more. The Mr Bear Sitges competition is also held on the final weekend of the event. The event attracts guys of all ages and types and many new friendships are made and old ones rekindled.
Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action.
Typically most festivities on the first weekend leading up to the opening of the village (Mon 4th) take place on the streets of C Bonaire and Joan Tarrida with many people gathering on the corner of Bears Bar and visiting the different bars along the streets, ending at Organic Dance Club.
The Village opens on the Monday and continues right through to the end of the week culminating on the 11th which is also a holiday – The National Day of Catalunya.
The Bear Village is located on the seafront of Sitges, on Psg Ribera and can be easily reached by following C.Bonaire right to the end and crossing the street to the beach-paseo on the other side. Typicaly parties taking place in the village include the White Night, the election of Mr Bear Sitges and other famous, well known parties from the bear circuit.
Other activities include a special Bear Dinner, Afternoon beach meet ups and more. Other parties taking place during the event include the Bear Beach Party, the Bear Boat Party and the POPAir BBQ. Dates for these events will be announced in early March.
Sitges Bear Village is located right on Psg Ribera at the bottom of C.Bonaire, one of the busiest streets where Bears Bar, Queenz and Privilege is located. Check out the video of the event below.
