Chicago BearFest 2018
CHICAGO BEERFEST 2018 is coming!  

Join bears, cubs and their admirers for a wild, hairy weekend in Chicago May 24th thru May 28th.   This marks our 2nd year in hosting this weekend for bears to gather in the Windy City.  Our schedule of events has expanded to more entertainment, hunky bear dancers, the 2018 Chicago Bear & Chicago Cub contest and a special show My Big Funny Peter featuring our headliner internationally acclaimed comedian Peter Bisuito.

Unlike most bear events, there is no official host hotel. Rather than sequester our out of town guests in a big hotel downtown away from Chicagos amazing gay nightlife, Chicago BearFest takes place in the heart of Andersonville and Rogers Park neighborhoods.  

These areas on Chicagos northside are thriving gay neighborhoods alive with many nightspots, dining experiences and shopping treasures.  Andersonville and Rogers Park are also served by CTA trains and bus making getting around the city very convenient.

We urge out of town guests to book accommodations of their choice or stay with local friends. There are numerous hotels, motels, guest houses and Air B&B sites within walking distance of our host venues.  A list of area hotels and guest houses are listed on our Facebook page.

Weekend registration for Chicago BearFest is just $45 and includes:
   The official Chicago BearFest wristband that entitles you to $1 all your drinks at the host party bars, a 10% discounts on meals at Hamburger Marys and the Andersonville Brewing Company
 Discounts and special offers from area merchants and service during the Bear Crawl
 A Chicago BearFest t-shirt (our first shirt)
 Ticket to the Sunday show My Big Funny Peter starring Peter Bisuito.  

Register here on Brown Paper Tickets by May 16th and save $5.
