Furball Dunes Bear Weekend 2021
Calling all bears, cubs, otters, and more! It’s time to make the fur fly. Get a little wild at Furball Weekend at the Dunes.
The Dunes Resort transforms into a weekend mecca for beautiful bears and their admirers. The events, presented by Joe Fiore, kick off Friday with an Underbear Party, complete with meet and greets, drink specials and go-go boys galore.
The fun continues Saturday with an afternoon barbecue and the FurBall event that evening; followed on Sunday by the Drag Brunch and the famous Dunes Tea Dance from 4-9 pm.
Furball Dunes Bear Weekend is the brainchild of Joe Fiore, the promoter and organizer of the very popular Furball in NYC.
Owners of The Dunes Resort, Mike Jones, Danny Esterline and Greg Trzybinski, who purchased the Douglas Resort almost two decades ago, have created an inviting atmosphere that beckons visitors to come to the resort and the surrounding Saugatuck-Douglas lakefront area year after year.
About the Dunes
- The Dunes is the area’s primary hub for the hottest LGBTQ entertainment, with themed parties, a live DJ, karaoke, and drag queen bingo. Between The Club, The Main Bar, The Show Bar, The Deck and pool, there is always something happening all summer long at The Dunes.
Gay Sugatuk and Douglas
- Saugatuck and Douglas are harbor villages that celebrate diversity—small-town America at its best! Here LGBT visitors can turn back the pages of time to enjoy a simpler life where no one hurries, and no one hurries you; a place where everyone is special and everyone is welcome.
The Gay Beach
- Saugatuck is home to one of the best gay Michigan beaches and destinations for gay and lesbian vacations in the United States: Oval Beach in Saugatuck. With the right combination of stunning sand dunes, seclusion and services, Oval Beach has earned Saugatuck the nickname “Provincetown of the Midwest.” Hugging the mostly undeveloped dunes of Lake Michigan’s eastern shore, Oval Beach is perfect for sunbathing! Beaches like these in Saugatuck are a rare gem: the clean, unspoiled, and pristine beauty of the place takes your breath away. Oval Beach is one of Saugatuck’s true treasures.
