About International Bear Bash

International Bear Bash takes place in sunny Orlando, Florida, USA at the end of September and draws a broad and diverse international crowd of men from around the world. Held in a city that is regularly hailed as one of The Advocate ranked gayest cities in the USA, no city compares to the attractions of Orlando, FL. Much like Orlando, International Bear Bash proudly features non-stop parties, top notch entertainment, all held at an unparalleled host hotel.
