Bear week started in Sitges this Friday and will continue until 11 September. Known as one of the biggest gathering of its kind in Europe and possibly the world, with over 6,000 bears and admirers.
The epicenter of the celebrations is as usual the Calle Joan Tarrida, where popular XXL, El Horno and Bears Bar are located. During the day time the clothing-optional beach of Es Balmins will be the centre of the action.
This year a ‘Bear-Village’ on the seafront will also feature a stage with many of different theme nights, acts and shows.
There are many parties every night, which are listed on the website of Bear Week Sitges, including ‘White Bear’ on Tuesday 5 September but one of the highlights will be the election of Mr Bear Sitges on Saturday 9 September.
