TBRU 2023 is going to be absolutely sinful!

Indulge your deepest desires at TBRU! A weekend of frivolity and wickedness where the Sinners are all Winners!

The Texas Bear Round Up (TBRU) in Dallas, Texas, sponsored by the Dallasbears has become one of the BIGGEST and BADDEST Bear events to happen every year, and this year’s theme let’s us know why it’s considered one of the baddest! This year’s event is serving you the seven deadly sins – Sloth, Lust, Envy, Wrath, Gluttony, Greed and Pride – in a way only TBRU can! 

The Dallasbears have put together a sinful event, including a Kick-off Party and Costume Contest, and the Mr. TBRU Contest!
