The Mr Ottawa Bear 2020 competition (January 24-27) is now part of a full-weekend Bear Run with tons of activities all weekend long including Sweet Bear Desserts, Meet the Meat, Bear Brunch, Bear Swim, Board Games, Skating on the Canal and of course the MOB competition itself which will feature some amazing live entertainment from local artists, silent auctions and a cash bar with all profits going to an amazing charity: Capital Rainbow Refuge.

This year we are selling a VIP package that will include all the paid events for the weekend as well as an MOB 2020 bear run t-shirt. 

Consult the Schedule page for full details on all events taking place during the Mr Ottawa Bear weekend and purchase your VIP ticket via Eventbrite using the form below.

Also, if you’re planning to attend Sunday’s Survivor’s Brunch, be sure to reserve a spot.

Remember, if you’re purchasing individual events, you can still add on a t-shirt during the checkout process.

Note about shirts: Shirts have been ordered from the embroidery company so that they will be ready for the Mr Ottawa Bear weekend and you will be able to pick them up during Sweet Bear Desserts or Meet the Meet. For orders placed after January 10 your shirt will not be ready in time. Another order will be placed immediately after the competition weekend and we will contact you via email to arrange to get it to you.
