Bear Carnival 2024 Canarias
Bear Carnival Maspalomas takes place from 9th to 17th March 2024.
Most European LGBT beach destinations are located in the sunny Spain, such as Sitges, Ibiza and Gran Canaria. In the latter case, this includes a nice subtropical, summer-like weather… even in mid-Winter! Thanks to a vibrant gay community enjoying this climate, Gran Canaria hosts the biggest gay event calendar in the World, including Europe’s largest programme for bears and friends. But wait: this has nothing to do with any other “bear week” you may have heard about before!
Say hello to “Bear Carnival”, held every March just after the World-famous Canarian carnival in Maspalomas, Europe’s largest beach resort. Well beyond the usual disco party and pub crawl driving most bear festivals, Bear Carnival’s programme comprises around 40 events, including Europe’s biggest bear pool parties, excursions to discover this subtropical paradise, fine dining experiences, luxury spa evenings, cabaret shows, a speed dating party… all organized around a crazy bear carnival with a new theme each year. 2023’s one will be “The Circus”. Highlights include a one-day cruise on one of the biggest catamarans in the World, retrofitted as a floating disco for the occasion, and of course the usual set of daily house sessions and sex parties at the legendary men-only clubs in Maspalomas. Moreover, all this will be available at the reasonable, VAT-exempt prices of the Canary Islands.
