Not to worry, same parties, same beautiful warm weather and all the furry fun you can handle.

For those of you who already have your tickets they will automatically transfer to the new dates.

For those of you who will not be able to make the new dates, send an email to shane@FireIslandBearWeekend.com and please include the email address and name you purchased the tickets under and i will send you a full refund of the ticket price.

Stay safe BEARS! See you in September! WooF!

Hello Beards and Bears,

Fire Island is truly a gay paradise but as with all good things it comes at a price and that price can at times be expensive. Here are some tips on how to attend Fire Island Bear Weekend on a budget.

The Art Of The Deal:

Hotels on Fire Island can be costly but there are deals to be had. Some hotels like The Belvedere Guest House offer discounts if you book early and some hotels like the Grove Hotel offer a 25% discount for anyone going to Fire Island Bear Weekend. There are also low cost hotels in the Pines just a quick water taxi ride, meat rack walk or walk on the beach away. Click here...
