Welcome to the 63rd McCleary Bear Festival
Celebrating together since 1959
Since 1959, the McCleary Bear Festival has been an important part of the small town of McCleary, WA. Organized by a non-profit group of volunteers this community event features a grand parade, family entertainment, a softball tournament, car show, soapbox derby, and of course our famous bear stew. The McCleary Bear Festival welcomes visitors from all over the country to enjoy the fun of an old fashioned, small town festival.
We are excited to see our community and supporters back together to begin planning our 2022 event! Stay tuned, we will be updating this page and our Facebook with final details throughout the year.
