Big Bear Weekend 2021

Bears Christchurch are proud to present Big Bears Weekend 2021!


Bears Christchurch Big Bear Weekend is always the highlight of the bears social calendar, and we invite all bears far and wide, and bears supporters and members of our wider community to join us in a weekend of fun activities and opportunities to mingle, make new friends, and celebrate what it is to be part of our diverse and inclusive community!


Due to covid we are running a slightly smaller program of events, but still plenty of fun things on the calendar this year! There are still a number of fun things for bears and bear followers to take part in (feel free to bring a friend or more with you!). It promises to be a great time for all involved!

Bears Christchurch are proud to present another fun car rally!


If you are looking for a fun day out with a group of friends, be sure to register your interest!


Groups will set off from Latimer Square at 10am and will have to fill out a task list that will require solving clues, taking photos, and more, as you travel a secret path across Christchurch!


The conclusion of the rally will be a BYO picnic lunch at a secret location. Bears will provide sausages and bread for a sausage sizzle, but please bring other food and drink.


This will be LOTS of fun with prizes for best dressed, first car/group to complete the course correctly, and more!
