Lazy Bear Weekend 2018
The Lazy Bear fund puts on one of the largest and most successful bear gatherings in the world. Lazy Bear Weekend is our annual, signature event.
For over 20 years we have entertained thousands of guests in Guerneville, California in the heart of Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley.
Enjoy pool parties, dance parties, bonfires, live entertainment and amazing DJs. Stay in local lodges, campgrounds and cabins, or avail yourself of any number of nearby towns and cities. Eat at gourmet restaurants, local diners, cookouts and unique pop-ups. Drink world-class wine near the vineyards that produce it.
While you’re enjoying your long, lazy weekend, remember that all of the profits go to charity.The event has raised nearly $2 million for worthy causes and we’re just getting started.
About an 90 minute drive north of San Francisco lies Guerneville, the largest town along the Russian River (population 3,500). Within the three block square downtown, you’ll find restaurants, shops, and taverns. A block or two off the main road, you’ll find a handful or resorts that cater specifically to gay clientele.
The Russian River is the West Coast’s favorite LGBT playground. Situated in the heart of Western Sonoma County, this string of offbeat river villages attracts thousands of LGBT visitors every year for a wide range of activities and fun.
Enjoy new experiences every time you visit. Gorgeous dry, sunny days dominate May – September, perfect for sunning by a pool with your friends or canoeing down the River. You can go biking, hiking and wine-tasting during the day, and every evening there is something happening at the bars & clubs.
Or you can decide to do nothing at all and relax after dinner to the sound of the wind in the redwoods.
Boasting over 250 of the world’s most award-winning wineries, 76 miles of scenic coastline, pristine beaches, the mystical Russian River and majestic redwoods, Sonoma County is uniquely experienced with the Russian River as your home base.
