BEAR MARKET will be SUNDAY JULY 9th 10am-4pm & Thursday JULY 13th 2020, in Provincetown, MA at The Crown & Anchor on Commercial Street. 

This is Bear Market's 13th Year! As we have in the past we are not charging vendors to be part of the market we just ask for a donation at the end of the day that we will pool together and give to local charities or local non profits. Most vendors in the past give around 5% of what they made that day. We've raised over $25,000 for SKIP and other local charities since we began in 2010. 

We will be holding Bear Market at The Crown & Anchor for both Days this summer. Each day must be selected separately on the vendor app. (depending on if you want to do one of the days or both) 

Bear Market has been Produced, by Ruff Studio (Shane Ruff) since 2010, for the Ptown Bears, Bear Week in Provincetown, MA - for more information on Bear Week go to  A special thank you to Peter Chronis for organizing the market in 2022 for us and for always going that extra mile with helping out. 

Additional Signage will be put up to get more foot traffic and to better direct customers into the club. We will be printing a Post Card that each vendor will receive to help with promoting the event. (TBD)

Load in and set up will be at around 7am for vendors to arrive at the venue and begin loading in and settubg up. The staff at the venue will be setting up the tents in the courtyard and removing all the speakers and gogo boxes in the Paramount, so please wait for them to finish before starting set up. 

I will announce via email & online when Registration is closed and when we are full. We will have a Waiting List for any vendors that didn't make registration in time, if we have any cancellations.
