BWM’s Exclusive Recap of Spring Beark! 2024 from the Norway Bears

From what we’ve heard, the Oslo Bear Weekend: Spring Beark! event from the Den Norsk Bamseklubben (Norway Bears), which took place earlier this month, was a big hit!

Casey Wilson of the Norway Bears was kind enough to give us the details and to share photos from the weekend with us. Apparently, over one hundred bears attended the inaugural event. Highlights included the wet t-shirt contest at Friday night Bears Gone Wild Party which was hosted by Big Daddy Karsten who kicked things off with a three song set. There was then a sold-out daytime sauna excursion to SALT by the Oslo Fjord on Saturday which was followed that night with the Spring Bear Cave party at SLM Oslo. We’re told hot hairy bears filled the venue wall to wall, occupying the upstairs bar area ….and the downstairs playroom. WOOF!

On Sunday attendees finished out the weekend with ‘Pizzapalooza’ at Goldie. The pizza brunch/drag show featured hosts Lille Spy and Huffda, as well as the talents of Linda Plant and Florence who was a last-minute addition. Casey himself even got into full “pizza drag” for the show as miss ‘Peppa Roni’!

Notable guests of the event included Marcin Jablonkowski, Mr Bear Poland 2024, and Soen Trueman, Mr Bear Granaria 2024, who were very welcome additions to the handsome crowd of bears in attendance.

The event was such a success that it has already been confirmed that Oslo Bear Weekend will return next year from May 8-11, 2025! Start making your arrangements now!

In the meantime, enjoy some exclusive photos from this year’s festivities courtesy of the Norway Bears.
