Though SF Bear Weekend has no official host hotel, it's nice to get everyone in the same place. Therefore this year we're recommending you stay at the Civic Center Holiday Inn, just a few blocks from The Lone Star. Click here to visit their website.

Hotel Mark Twain is also offering a special bear rate. Please click here for more info. For more lodging options, click here.

About SFBW

For twenty-two years Presidents Day Weekend has been "bear weekend" in San Francisco, starting in 1992 with the first Bear Expo. Seventeen International Bear Rendezvous followed, but sadly, 2011 was the last IBR.

In it's absence, and with the understanding that the essence of any bear event is of course the people, SF Bear Weekend - a grassroots, social media driven event was born. SF Bear Weekend 2012 and 2013 were huge successes, and we're looking forward to seeing our old friends at SF Bear Weekend 2014!

What it won't have:
* Dog Tags or any type of Official Registration
* A Shuttle Bus
* A Theme (other then bears!)
* Official Events
* An Official Charity Fund
What it will have:
* Bears, Cubs, Otters, Chubs, Chasers and more!

We need your help to make SF Bear Weekend 2014 beartastic! Unlike most bear gatherings, there is no organized group behind SFBW. We rely on word of mouth and social networking to get the word out.

The sole purpose of the weekend, as a whole, is to have fun, as opposed to making a charity or promoter money. There are no dog tags or shuttle buses. Just furry guys who want to meet new people, catch up with old friends, and keep alive the SF tradition started 22 years ago with Bear Expo, followed by IBR.
