Mr Bear New Zealand 2018

Ending HIV Bear New Zealand Week

Friday 9 February, 8pm

The Dog’s Bollix  2 Newton Road, Grey Lynn
Free Event

Gentlemen, start your engines – and may the best Bear win!

It’s the annual contest to crown New Zealand’s King of Bears, and find out who will compete in Melbourne at the 2018 Mr Australasia Bear competition.

Last year, Morro Qiu won not only the New Zealand title, but the main prize in Australia as well! Can we make it two years in a row? Can anyone fill Morro’s happy dancing shoes? Come along and find out!

The winner receives flights to Melbourne’s Southern HiBearnation in June to compete in Mr Australasia Bear as Aotearoa’s official entrant.

If you’re keen to enter, and help raise loads of money for the New Zealand AIDS Foundation, email [email protected] for details.
