Registration is open! Black Friday Special!

Registration is now open for Bear Crossing 3! The event will be held August 11th through the 14th in 2016. Our host hotel will once again be 816 Hotel. We will have information very soon on booking your hotel room. The rate for hotels will again be $99/night no matter if you’re getting a King or two Doubles. We are still putting the final touches on our schedule as well. If you’ve been to Bear Crossing before you can expect another great year of fun activities, great food and meeting a variety of bears from around the USA and beyond. Be sure to tell your friends to get in while registration is only $79 until the end of this month! If you haven’t been to Bear Crossing we will definitely be showing you a fantastic time! Our theme this year is all about the big summer games and we don’t intend to rest on our laurels! (Sorry, that was an Olympic pun.) We will have Splashdance at CoCo Key Water Resort in addition to our exclusive Furnado dance party. We will have after hours parties at the hotel with delicious food and all the liquor and beer you can drink! We plan on having multiple activities during the day for you to enjoy and we are going to do a better job of having vendors on hand with cool stuff for you to buy. If you are interested in vending please let us know. We will have registration up for vendors and volunteers in the beginning of December.

Registration pricing will increase as follows:

December 1st – $99
March 1st – $129
June 1st – $139
At the door – $159

So be sure to take advantage of the $79 pricing before it goes up! And stay tuned for further updates!

Bear Crossing is here!

Today’s the day! Bear Crossing 2: The Sequel officially begins! If you’ve purchased a run pass all you need to do is bring your state issued ID to our registration table at 816 Hotel. Registration starts at 3pm on Thursday and will end at 8pm. If for some reason you make it in later you can join us at Missie B’s for our kick off party. If you don’t have your own transportation the hotel can drop you off. Ask for Larry Sharp at the Kick Off Party and he will provide your run badge to you and make arrangements for you to pick up your run bag. If you did not pre-register for a full run pass but want to join in on the fun, you can still get in on the fun with walk up pricing of $150! You’ll still get access to all the weekend’s events with the exception of the Bear Crossing 2 beach towel.

If you registered for any a la carte events you will need to check in at the actual event. If you didn’t pre-register for individual events you can still pay at the door for Splashdance, Furnado and all three after parties!

Remember, you must have your state issued ID as well as your run badge or wrist band to attend the majority of the weekend events.
See you at Bear Crossing!

Greetings, everyone! This is the last month to get your full Bear Crossing run pass before we stop selling online. Walk up passes will be $150 at the door so be sure to get yours before August 1st! Also, if you register before August 1st you will be guaranteed a BEAR CROSSING BEACH TOWEL!

Vendor Registration Live!

If you’d like to register to be a vendor at Bear Crossing 2 you can now do so on the registration page! Our hotel only has one large hospitality suite so we have to make it dual purpose. You have the option to vend on either Friday or Saturday if you do not wish to break down your booth. Otherwise, you can vend both days and we can provide some help to you in order to make it easier to sell your goods both days! Also, vendors are able to purchase up to two full run passes for the low price of $65 each! Just be sure to register before July 31st and make sure to secure your hotel room!

 

For local service groups that want to provide information and not sell items, please contact us about opportunities to set up shop and meet the bears!
