BearTown Portland 2019
Bears gather from across the country to celebrate their culture with dance parties, day trips and more at BearTown — all while raising money for LGBTQ charities.
Beartown Portland features Mr. Oregon Bear and Cub contest to Beartown, which will also include a banquet dinner, dessert and a silent auction!
Other highlights include the Portland Underground tour, Blast Off!: Meet + Greet and the Vertical Thrust!: Bear Strip show – 9PM-2AM – at Stag on opening night.
Every year the BearTown event has a theme. The parties on each of the main weekend nights reflect the theme and feature everything from Drag Queens to Cigar Socials. The highlight of the event is the Victory Party and Dance and the “Furfuck” party at Hawks.
Sunday closes things with a more relaxed Beartown Bingo with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence at Scandals and a Goodbye session at the Eagle.
