Our first ever Digital Bear Weekend took place this weekend and over 8700 people from around the world came together for a celebration of the bear community.
Featuring performances, workshops, shopping, interviews and much more, this weekend was a world first for the bear community and due to its huge popularity, a date has already been announced for a July Edition – 10, 11 & 12 July.
The audience for this weekend was a truly global affair, including attendees from USA, Canada, Mexico, UK, Japan, Europe and South America.
Robin Gray, Editor of Bear World Magazine, said: “I’m truly humbled by the response to our first ever Digital Bear Weekend. When we set out, we were planning on having 10 performers and I expected a few hundred people to tune in. We ended up with over 25 performances and over 7000 people! I’m so so proud of what we achieved and I have to give a shout out to the performers, our sponsors W | Bear and BearCity, and my colleagues Richard and Kyle for their hard work.”
Digital Bear Weekend returns 10-12 July with the promise of a bigger and more varied programme of activities.
