Texas Bear Round-Up 27


The Dallas Bears’ Texas Bear Round-Up began circa 1995 with a hand full of Dallas Bears members coordinating their first event. The event was attended mostly by the Bear community in Texas. A small event with lots of Fun, Fur and Frolic. Each year TBRU has grown in numbers and in purpose. Once a small friendly bear, TBRU has grown into a large Bear family reunion and fundraiser.

TBRU 7 began our robust growth period. The Dallas Bears have continuously evolved TBRU.  TBRU is a party with a purpose. Our international Bear family comes together in Dallas every third weekend in March. It has commonly been called a Big Bear Reunion – a time we see our Bear friends from all over the world. It is always fun to see some many familiar faces and to meet new ones. TBRU feeds our souls, but it also does a lot of good work in the community. Each year the Dallas Bears and BearDance donate the profits to our three Dallas charitable 501c3 beneficiaries. The members of the Dallas Bears, and friends, work diligently all year long to produce a fun event and to raise as much money as possible for our charities. TBRU 24 allowed the Dallas Bears and BearDance to donate almost $80,000 and TBRU 25 allowed $57,325. We couldn't do this without our guests at TBRU and BearDance.

We hope that you will join us at TBRU 26: Masquerade. With almost 1400 fellow Bear community , food, entertainment, games, TBRU contest, our infamous Hospitality Suite and much more you are destined to have a wonderful time.
