Bristol Bear Fiesta (BBF) is a gay event weekend that has been held every summer since 2003 in Bristol’s Gay Village in the heart of the Old Market Quarter.

We bring you a weekend of relaxation, music and fun primarily aimed at the hairy beary gay community, their admirers and friends, an easy-going event where everyone is welcome to join us for drinks, laughs and great nights out!

Since 2007 the BBF team have brought you a winter event too, Southern HiBearnation (SHB)

BBF and SHB are held in association with The Bristol Bear Bar at the centre of the Gay Village, currently still the UK’s only bespoke bear bar

The BBF and SHB weekends are non-ticket weekends and The Bristol Bear Bar is free entry
