Check out Xposure Events’ 2023 event line-up!

Xposure Events is bringing you some Bear-rific events all year-long!

Xposure events are free-flowing weekend events for the bear community, as well as the men who love and admire them. Whether you stay in a room at the resort, or just join us for the day, you will surely enjoy the chill atmosphere of a Xposure party. 

“Xposure” is the idea of being outdoors and exposed to the elements, naked, and being seen by the men around you. They encourage you to go at your own pace and make it the adventure you’re looking for. Check out their list of body and sex positive, clothing-optional Bear gatherings for 2023 below!


HAPPY NUDE YEAR – January 14-17, 2023

HAPPY NUDE YEAR is an extra long holiday weekend to strip down and explore your exhibitionist side. Greet the new year in your birthday suit with all the bears at the CCBC Resort.

How many attend? Happy Nude Year is a medium sized event that is largely affected by the weather. If we have good weather you can expect 300-400 over the weekend, bad weather will lessen that number. In years past however this has been a great weekend that’s always a bigger party than we expect it to be!

Western Xposure’s BEAR NAKED – February 24-27, 2023

Western Xposure’s BEAR NAKED is an alternative party to IBC for guys looking to get naked. We are a complimentary event to IBC, but not part of their event or run pass. We simply offer a clothing-optional place for pool parties and late night cruising during one of Southern California’s largest bear gatherings.

How many attend? Bear Naked is a heavily attended event at night on Friday and Saturday, and during the day on Sunday at the pool (weather permitting). IBC draws 5,000+ men to the valley every year.

WESTERN X-MAS: Holiday Bear Retreat – December 22 – 26, 2023

Celebrate the season with your chosen family at Western Xposure’s new holiday tradition! Western X-mas: Holiday Bear Retreat is a home for the holidays for everyone needing one. Whether you have nowhere to go, too many places to go, or just need a year off we’ve got you covered. 

Join us at the CCBC Resort for a weekend of Holiday cheer done the Western Xposure way! NAKED and full of food! We’ll be hanging in the pool, hot tubs, and steam room. We’ll be cruising the trails and back rooms stuffing umm… stockings! Everyone here is on the naughty list and we LOVE IT!

How many attend? Western X-mas is one of our smaller gatherings. But that’s not a bad thing. Most people are busy, this is for those of us looking for alternative holiday plans *wink wink*. The colder temps fill the hot tubs with men and make cuddling for warmth a fun activity. You can expect about 100 guys over the weekend.
