ABF2020 Has Been Rescheduled

ABF20 to ABF21

After careful consideration and much hand wringing the ABF planning committee has decided that, in light of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, ABF2020 will have to be rescheduled to 2021.

We have explored multiple scenarios and many possible solutions. After consulting with the host hotel, our partners, and staff have come to the conclusion that this is the only responsible decision to make.

We did not make this decision lightly. The well-being of our attendees, partners, staff and community are our highest priority and we do not feel, at this time, holding the event is a responsible thing to do.

Additionally, as most of you know, Atlanta Bear Fest is a charity event and charities need as much help and support as they can get during these trying times. So rescheduling the event and depriving our charities of much needed funds is a particularly bitter pill.

We are heartbroken and know this is a very challenging time for everyone, and appreciate your understanding and support. Moving forward we’ll focus all of our efforts on making ABF2021 even better.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact John Beck at info@atlantabearfest.com

What to do next?

  1. ABF2021 will be held from 07/02/2021 to 07/05/2021.
  2. Hotel Reservations: All hotel reservations for ABF2020 will be canceled. Nothing to do on your end. We are working on the contract for ABF2021 and will announce once it is available for booking (normally late Octorber).
  3. ABF VIP Packages: All paid ABF2020 VIP Packages will be transferred to ABF2021 automatically. By doing that you will be:
    • locked in for the best price (current VIP Package is $99 which will increase from here).
    • entered for a drawing for two free VIP passes for ABF22.
