The Northeast Ursamen bring the Bears ‘Out of Hibernation’ in Provincetown!

March is the month that the Bears are coming Out of Hibernation in Provincetown!

Organized by the Northeast Ursamen, the Provincetown Business Guild, and the Crown & Anchor, Out of Hibernation is a celebration of the coming spring for the Bear community and their friends featuring parties, contests, games, and more, including Tough Drag Bingo and the Bears and Boxers Party.

“Out of Hibernation is a great opportunity to experience a Bear-centric getaway in Provincetown that is less crowded, more affordable, and more intimate,” said Stephan Hengst, executive director of the Provincetown Business Guild. “We love July’s Bear Week celebration, but also know that it is not for everyone and encourage Bears, Cubs, Otters, Wolves, and their friends to enjoy Provincetown during Out of Hibernation.”
