Bears Bears…. Everywhere!

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. Book your hotel early.

The Bear Route – bars to visit!

Typically most festivities on the first weekend leading up to the opening of the village.  Early evening the bears meet 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.

The bear village typically arrives on the first Monday of the week. During the weekend and indeed well beyond,  XXL, El Horno, Man Bar, La Villa and Runway form the nexus of “Bear Alley”, the nickname given to Calle Joan Tarrida and a nightly gathering spot for bears from all over the world.


Join the hottest boys and bears from Barcelona for an epic BBQ. The event typically takes place on the final Saturday of the event. (to be confirmed)

The Bear Village

The Village typically 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. 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.
