Guerneville’s Lazy Bear Weekend now a full week
The 23rd annual Lazy Bear Weekend gathering is expanding to include a full week of relaxing and celebrating — and Lazy Bear Week 2019 is set for Monday, July 29 to Monday, Aug. 5 in Guerneville, in western Sonoma County.
Proceeds go to local, national, and international charities, and over the years the nonprofit annual event has raised nearly $2 million for worthy causes. Last year about 3,000 hairy, burly, crazy, and lazy revelers from around the world celebrated in Guerneville and other resort areas along the Russian River, long the West Coast’s favorite LGBTQ playground.
The 2019 schedule includes pool parties, dance parties, hikes, barbecues, wine tours, shows, dances, feasts, bonfires, and live entertainment. Participants can also decide to do nothing at all, and just relax to the sound of the wind in the redwoods.
