Since 1959, McCleary Bear Festival has brought our community together to celebrate the history we are founded upon and to show our community spirit! This is made possible by the generosity and partnerships forged with local businesses and other organizations who want to get involved and give back. As a non-profit organization, Bear Festival is made possible by the support of our sponsors, donors and operations from the annual festival.
Royalty Court Parade Travel Expenses (Fuel & Hotel for 3-overnight festivals):
McCleary Bear Festival community members and sponsors. After a cancelled festival season for so many across Washington State due to COVID restrictions, our 2020 Royalty Court has graciously returned for the 2021 festival season and we are determined to deliver memories and experiences for them to have for years to come.
Our Royalty have been working hard and are committed to getting our float around Washington State for multiple grand parades to support other festivals and their Royalty, but also represent our community as ambassadors.
Want to join in sending your Royalty Ambassadors around Washington? We're raising money to cover fuel and hotel costs for 3 overnight festivals between April and September (Daffodil Festival 5-day event, Wenatchee Apple Blossom, and Leavenworth Autumn Leaf Festival). Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution that means so much to our Royalty, their families, and our community.
