Every year we strive to bring you some of the best entertainment within the LGBT Community. From drag queens, to singers, to our very own Orlando Gay Chorus, we work to make sure your entertainment experience is one you will never forget!
Our event takes place in October when most of the country is bracing for cooler weather, but it's nice and sunny here in Orlando! With weather normally in the 80's, you can grab your swim trunks and flip flops and get ready to party in the sun with your new friends!
We host daily pool parties along with other great entertainment options to keep you moving all weekend long!

Our Run Pass registration is handled through RegOnline and will be active very soon! If you are planning on staying at the Parliament House for Bear Bust XXVII, then please make your reservation first. Each room reservation comes with two complimentary run passes, but if you complete the registration first we may not be able to process the complimentary code. If you are not staying at the Parliament House, you can register for a full weekend pass or take advantage of our Saturday Day Pass option.
Check back soon for the Registration Link!
Our event rundown will be posted as we get closer to our event as well as important announcements including deadlines for our event shirt order and what entertainment will be appearing at this year's event.
We will also be looking for contestants for this year's Mr. Perky Butt contest as well as the Mr. Bear Bust contest. If you are interested in being a contestant you will be able to confirm that within your registration. Our contests are open to all guests, so we will also post a separate contest registration form in the near future for those attending but not purchasing a run pass.
These companies and organizations help us every year to make sure we are able to bring you the best event possible. If you would be interested in being a sponsor for Bear Bust, send Pat an email!
