Several national bear gatherings are hosted at a central city hotel that may not be located conveniently to the host city's gay nightlife and community. Chicago is well known for the gay bars, restaurants, shops and more that stretch the city's northside all the way to Evanston. CHICAGO BEARFEST is bringing the party to the Andersonville and Rogers Park neighborhoods, both home to large concentrations of LGBT's and lots and lots of bears.
In lieu of booking a hotel in Chicago's loop, we encourage our visiting bears and friends to check out the hotels in Andersonville and Rogers Park. There are hundreds of Air B&B's as well, many offered by LGBT's, all near Chicago's nightlife on the northside. You can enjoy savings on downtown hotel rates, and transportation up to Chicago's LGBT neighborhoods. Plus, you don't have to shell out big bucks to be a part of the party as registering for Chicago BearFest is free.
