Meet and Party with the Where The Bears Are cast.

Yes that’s right, join all four of the main cast members of Where The Bears Are. Wood (Joe Dietl), Nelson (Ben Zook), Reggie (Rick Copp), and of course the one with the bulging Y-fronts, Hot Toddy (Ian Parks).

Southern HiBearnation 2014 June 8th-15th.

These talented guys will not only be partying at the events, but also hosting, entertaining and yes even filming an episode for “Where the Bears Are: Season 3” in and around SH14.

We’re proud to announce that the stars of Where The Bears Are will be hosting a special gala dinner to introduce our Mr Australasia Bear contestants. Enter the Show Time warehouse to be treated to a sit down 2 course meal while you enjoy a night of getting to know our contestant as they get roasted…American Style…all in the name of good fun.

Exclusive to Southern HiBEARnation 2014, the cast of Where The Bears are will also be giving us a sneak peek of their upcoming Season 3 episodes. Come and join us in the theatre for a Saturday afternoon matinee, followed by a question and answer period. Meet the guys and find out insights of producing the world wide net phenomena, acting, producing, marketing and other hints to succeed. Film fans, budding directors, cubs, bears and friends…this your chance to find out more.

Friday sees us introduce Bear Stomp…

Do you love to walk?  Want to see Melbourne like you’ve never seen it before?  Well then Bear Stomp is for you.

Working in teams, all you Cubs and Bears will discover beautiful Melbourne by visiting famous attractions and historic sites.  Along the way teams will have to collect items to show where they have been, all the while trying to beat the other teams back to Mannhaus. It’s a great way to meet and make new friends in fun and friendly relaxed afternoon.

We’re doing something different on Friday night…

Winter Retreat will be the dance party to rival all Bear dance parties.  Set in the uber cool Colonial Hotel, Winter Retreat promises a night of fun and dancing, and of course wall-to-wall bears. Come in from the cold, dance your legs off, and get warm with Bears, Cubs, Otters, Wolves and their mates. Pumping the frosty beats to warm us up will be Shane Ki and DJ Vincible.

Saturday night is of course our Mr Australasia Bear Competition. Returning hosts and Luke Wondercub Mitchell and Dr George, The Healthy Bear, will host another night of fun as we get to know even more about contestants for 2014.

Of course our favourite events are staying with us….FUR, Bearaoke Den Night, Trivial Hirsute with Dean Arcuri, UnderBear Dance, Bear Soup at Wet on Wellington, and Round Up at the GH.

We are excited to be bringing you the cast of Where The Bears Are, and the guys cannot wait to get here and party with us.

Special thanks from VicBears to the Victorian AIDS Council/Gay Men’s Health Centre and our two main sponsors Mannhaus and the Laird Hotel who have helped to bring the guys out to Melbourne.

Have an awesome Southern Hibearnation for 2014.

Your VicBears Committee.
