Escape from winter and join the Bears of the Old Pueblo for fun in the sun, a chance to meet new friends, and explore what Tucson has to offer at our 18th annual La Fiesta

This year, La Fiesta de Los Osos (Festival of the Bears) celebrates its 18th birthday! During the past seventeen Fiestas, over 3000 bears and buddies from over 20 countries have enjoyed the warmth and friendliness of our desert city, making Fiesta weekend one of the most anticipated bear events in the U.S.!

La Fiesta features social events, day tours to Southern Arizona attractions, meals, entertainment, pool parties and the Fur Real Dance. We also have our own special Bear Contest of its own unique nature unlike others at other events.


We’ve got a schedule that’s just packed with stuff to do this year. Whether you love swimming and poolside drinks, hot and sweaty dances with tons of sexy men, or fun excursions to local breweries and scenic sights, there’s absolutely much to enjoy at La Fiesta 2014. Please note that some details (such as time and location) are still in flux as we continue to plan so check back here closer to the event for the final version of the schedule.
