HiBearNation 24: Fifty Shades of Bear


ST. LOUIS — The Show Me Bears of St. Louis will be hosting their 34th bear run, Hibernation, on Nov. 1 through 4.

From the Facebook event page:

The Show-Me Bears present HiBearNation 24: Fifty Shades of Bear November 1st- 4th in Saint Louis, Missouri. This year’s event will examine the many “shades” of identity in bear culutre. Our mission is to encourage curiousity and acceptance of the intersectionality of self-identifying Bears.

The Holiday Inn-St. Louis Downtown will serve as Host Hotel. New hotel policy:

– A first night’s deposit will be made on all credit card reservations on October 18th to confirm your stay by the Holiday Inn.

– Only registrants who buy run-passes to HiBearNation 24: Fifty Shades of Bear will be allowed to book rooms at the special discounted rate.

In our 25th year, the Show-Me Bears is a social and charitable fundraising organization whose aim is to promote interest in bears. We raise money for local and regional HIV/AIDS-related charities through a variety of annual and special events, including HiBearNation.
