Bears Worldwide Prepare to Head to Puerto Vallarta for BeefDip 20!

Can you believe it?! Twenty years of BeefDip?1 What started as a small fledgling bear run has grown into one of the biggest, most successful and hotly anticipated bear runs in the world! And if you’ve ever been you know exactly why it has such a remarkable reputation. Well, apparently we haven’t seen anything yet as event organizers prepare for an even bigger celebration this year to mark the milestone anniversary. Our sister site Vacationer has put together the schedule of events and best places to stay for this year’s BeefDip which we present to you in its totality below.

Gay bears and their admirers are preparing for what’s touted as the “No. 1 Bear Week in the World” – BeefDip Bear Week in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico! The annual bear gathering is celebrating its 20th anniversary from January 28 to February 4, 2024, and we want to make sure you know how to properly plan your bear getaway.

Normally, guests could purchase non-refundable/non-transferable Dog Tags to get into all the planned events and get access to discounts only available via the tags. And pretty much like previous years for this annual event, the Dog Tags have sold out! But don’t worry… you still can join the fun.

Burly revelers can stay at the Pinnacle 179 or Blue Chairs Resort, but you may be out of luck in finding a room since BeefDip is only a few weeks away. You may be able to find available accommodations at other PV hotels and or via Airbnb!

In addition to almost daily “BeefDip Takeovers” at Studs Bear Bar, beefy revelers can check out a sample of the scheduled events below.
