10th Annual Bears, Bikers & Mayhem Will Feature East Coasts Largest Open Play Space

As the first and largest event in the U.S. to combine the Bear, Leather, Fetish, Motorcycle and Puppy communities, the 10th annual Bears, Bikers & Mayhem (BBM) is sure to be a beary kinky good time! 

This year, BBM will take place from April 23 – 27 at the Eisenhower Inn & Aspire Conference Center in Gettysburg, PA. This year’s event will also feature a new addition — the largest open play space on the east coast!

In the past, BBM has featured separate spaces for both bear/leather/fetish dance parties and play related activities. This year, the producers decided to up the ante and combine dancing and play in one large space! 

Friday’s PanDEMONium party will be the first leather and fetish event of the weekend to be featured in the large combined space, which is located in the Eisenhower Ballroom.

Saturday’s Bear dance party, Boots to Briefs, will also be featured in the combined play space. Both parties will start at 9:30 PM and end at 4:00 AM. 

The weekend will also include many day parties and events, including naked bowling, cigar parties, pool parties, a puppy mosh, a pit sniffing party, a rimming party and cuddle rooms for those who are into a more intimate space. 

One of the main events of the weekend will also be the Mr. Mayhem Leather and Mr. Mayhem Leather Bear competition. The will start with the “Attitude and Personality” category on Friday, and close with the “Jockstrap” and “Formal Wear” categories, followed by the winner announcements, on Saturday. 

There will also be vendor markets where guests will be able to purchase various leather, fetish and kink merchandise, as well as many other outings and special events available for an up-charge.

Sponsors for BBM include, Kilted Bros and BrūtBears.
