Midwest Bearfest is our premier December event of the Midwest Bearpack. Founded in 1996, Midwest Bearfest will celebrate turning 21 with the event titled, appropriately enough, “Year 21: Legally Bear”. During this extra-special four-day event, December 14-17th in Indianapolis, we are anticipating a record-setting crowd to help celebrate two decades, plus one, of furry fun!
The host hotel is officially full. When you register, complete the HOST HOTEL registration form to be placed on the waitlist. But you should also make a reservation at the Overflow Hotel if no rooms at the host hotel become available before the event in December. For information on the overflow hotel click here.
The Waterfront Hotel & Conference Center is conveniently located less than three miles from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and just 12 miles from downtown Indianapolis, the Indianapolis Zoo, the Indianapolis Convention Center and the Lucas Oil Stadium.
Guests of this Indianapolis hotel are invited to enjoy full-service accommodations including free local calls and free weekday newspaper. Relax in the indoor heated pool with whirlpool within a tropical setting of the atrium.
Most of the newly renovated guest rooms have a poolside or lakeside view and provide a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for your stay. All rooms feature coffee makers, room service, free HBO and voice mail. Selected rooms have microwaves and refrigerators.
