Awaiting Dates for 2021
The Urban Bear Weekend New York.
The Urban Bear week is a full 4 days of furry frisky fun. From bear parties to street fairs to yoga mats and beer blasts, this event has you covered!
Since Urban Bear Weekend first hit the city in 2008, Gotham’s bear scene has evolved from gay-nightife subculture to mainstream—beards are practically required in NYC gay bars these days—and the ursine movement shows no sign of slowing down.
The Urban Bear weekend has great parties and events including the big opening night party, the Monster Underbear Party, The Grizzly Guzzler Beer Blast (daily) a stunning sunset disco cruise on the Hudson and the Bears Ahoy after party.
Urban Bear Weekend’s main event is this afternoon’s furfest, an old-school street fair with vendors, artists and community groups on hand
Sunday is the highlight of the event with the NYC Street Fair and Mega Beer blast.
Events raised go to local gay charities. VIP packages are also available.
We have chosen hotels within walking distance of some of the gay bars, and a short taxi ride to the others.
