The event, formally known as Bear Weekend quickly grew from a small gathering to a major event under the name Belgium Bear Pride in 2014.
The program of planned event will include parties, excursions, fine dining and a rugby match.
Mr Bear 2017 will see a successor take over his crown on Saturday, October 14 with a professional jury and votes from the public, deciding who ‘Mr Bear Belgium 2018’ will be.
The complete programme of events will be decided and announced by July 1.
