Get Ready to Crown Brighton Bear 2024!

June 12, 2024

Words by Graham Munday, chair of Brighton Bear Weekend

Mark your calendars and prepare for the return of Brighton Bear Weekend, set to take place in the heart of Brighton from July 11 – 14. Celebrating its 14th year, this beloved community event, which raises funds for Brighton Rainbow Fund and the Sussex Beacon, promises a weekend brimming with excitement, camaraderie, and, of course, the crowning of the new Brighton Bear 2024!

One of the most anticipated highlights of the weekend is the election of Brighton Bear 2024. This year marks the sixth instalment of this much-loved tradition, where the community comes together to choose a bear who embodies the spirit and energy of Brighton Bear Weekend. The competition is not just about looks; it’s about celebrating our vibrant bear community’s character, charm, and contribution.

How to Cast Your Vote

Whether you’re a local or an international fan of the bear scene, you can participate in the voting process. Head over to our official website and cast your vote for the candidate who you think should wear the sash for the upcoming year. Voting is a breeze – you can vote only once, but if you change your mind, don’t worry. You can revise your choice any time before 12pm on July 13.

Why Your Vote Matters

The election of Brighton Bear 2024 is more than just a title – it’s a symbol of our community’s values and spirit. The chosen bear will represent us throughout the year, promoting inclusivity, pride, and the unique culture that makes Brighton Bear Weekend so special. Your vote helps highlight the diversity and dynamism of our community.

A Weekend to Remember

Brighton Bear Weekend isn’t just about the competition; it’s a celebration of friendship, love, and unity within the bear community. With a packed schedule of events, including social gatherings, parties, and fundraising activities, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Join us as we make memories, forge new connections, and celebrate the bear community in all its glory. And don’t forget – your vote could make all the difference in crowning the next Brighton Bear.
