Bears in Lauderdale is a community initiative presented by Hotspots Events, Hotspots Magazine, promoters Chuck and Greg King and Eagle Bar Wilton Manors.


Out of an abundance of caution based on the soaring numbers of COVID-19 cases in Florida and the nation due to the Omicron variant, we have decided to postpone the inaugural “Bears In Lauderdale” event to 2023. With almost 30,000 cases daily in Florida and predictions of those numbers rising, we felt it would be irresponsible of us to continue with the 5-day event. We will announce the new dates in early 2022.

We humbly apologize for the inconvenience this causes ticket holders, but rest assured by the time you are reading this over $20,000 in pre-sale tickets have been refunded. If you have purchased a run-pass and want to purchase the run-pass for the new dates in 2023, there will be an additional discount offered to you. The safety of our patrons and staff must be our number one priority. We hope everyone stays safe, gets vaccinated, and has a Happy New Year!

Bears In Lauderdale is produced by Hotspots! Events in collaboration with the Bear Community, promoters Chuck and Greg King, Eagle Bar Wilton Manors, Hotspots Magazine, LeatherWerks, Visit Lauderdale and more than two dozen sponsors and business partners.
