The “International Bears Meeting”, takes place on the May bank holiday weekend and is the first of two bears weeks taking place in Sitges, the second being the larger Bears Week in September.

The International Bears Week takes place on the last weekend of April/The First Weekend in May. The events have included paintballing, special dinners, beach meetings and pool parties. The event kicks off with a welcome reception at XXL… the main activities centre around the bars at Joan Tarrida, however the entire Village is full of bears so practically all of the bars in the village are full. The event is one of the most popular bears meeting in Spain and attracts a large international audience.
