Welcome to the Golden State Bears, Fresno's (and the Central Valley's) bear club!

We offer a social outlet for gay men who identify as a "bear", who like "bears", or who just like hanging out without all the attitude.

Since forming in September 1994, the Club has provided social activities for bears, cubs, their friends, and everybody else who loves them. Through activities like camping, hiking, boating, and other outdoor activities, we've “gotten away from it all” with like-minded men.

Each month, we host a number of regular and special events throughout the year. During the summer months, we host popular pool parties. And, don't forget our year-round monthly beer busts (which include a whole lot more than just beer).

Why not join us for some of our upcoming events below?
