Bear Carnival 2022

March 26-April 3, 2022

If everything goes as planned with COVID19, we may become the first major bear event featuring full normality. We will just relaunch more or less the same original programme we planned for 2020. Your original tickets will still be valid and the carnival theme will not change (“Greeks and Romans”).

Five reasons to come

Five reasons to come


Beach weather

Gran Canaria is a subtropical island. In March, we have 20-25°C with no rain. Enjoy the beach and bear pool parties 3 months before summer!


Safe programme

9 days filled with outdoor events at Yumbo's terrace bars, open-air receptions and shows, spa, and relaxing cruises and tours.


Guaranteed fun

Imagine our superlative gay scene, plus the vibe from hundreds of bears dressed up for our very own carnival!


Hot bears & chasers

Gatherings at the nude beach, and new safe kinks to try will be announced soon


No attitude

Our social programme creates an inclusive atmosphere where everyone feels welcome.
