Chosen as the best gay bar in Finland (QX) in 2015, Bear Park Cafe is the meeting place for everyone – young and old, gay or otherwise.

This venue started out in 2002 as a small summer kiosk and has been serving the gay community ever since. The kiosk building itself is almost 70 years  old.

Bear Park organises events all year: theatre, arts, music, movies. The Drag Bear Race® is the most popular competition in the park (since 2010). Every DBR Sunday, the park is packed with participants who come to enjoy ‘bears on heels’!
