Event description

Description

Midwest Bearfest turns 21 this year returning to the Waterfront Hotel on December 14-17, 2017 with friendly bears and cubs from all over. Online registration begins on April 25, 2017 starting at 9am, Eastern Daylight Time.

Let us know you're coming by signing up online and buying a t-shirt. If you're reading this, you've found the right place to register! Once you pay, you'll get a confirmation at the email address you signed up with. If you didn't get an email, let us know.

  1. You've got to be 21 years old by the first day of Midwest Bearfest--Dec. 14, 2017 in order to party with us.
  2. Everybody has got to accept the terms of the liability waiver when they sign up. No exceptions.
  3. Be sure and pick the number of passes and t-shirts you need. There are always some t-shirts available to buy during the run, but only while supplies last.
  4. You can buy run passes for more than one person, even if you're paying with one card. Just be sure to say how many passes you need up front, then fill out the info for each person joining you.
  5. If each person coming is paying with a different card, then fill out each form separately.
  6. If you plan to sell anything at the run, be sure and buy a vendor pass. Vendors can only buy a max of two passes: one for themselves, and another for a business associate. If you need more than two for your business, the extra people have to buy a regular run pass.
  7. The cost of the run pass doesn't include a t-shirt or a hotel room. Order t-shirts using this form.
  8. Hotel rooms in prime locations are reserved for guys who pay for a full run pass, and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Look for details in your confirmation email.
