Bear’ly Open XVI

February 3-4, 2023, White Bear Lake, MN

Welcome to the
White Bear Lake BEAR’ly Open!


Join us for the White Bear Lake BEAR’ly Open – Golf on Ice winter fun event. During these difficult economic times, the the issue of Food Insecurity has increased to record levels. Join us in our 16th year as we continue our mission to raise money for the White Bear Area Food Shelf on frozen White Bear Lake. A realistic golf course, complete with real pine trees, challenging holes and actual greens with flags make it a great way to have fun, get out of the house, and raise money for The Food Shelf. The Community Dance on Friday night, Feb. 3 will once again feature local favorite the “Wild Cat Combo”, playing the best of classic rock and roll.

The Bear’ly Open is an official event of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival.

Giving Back to the Community

The BEAR’ly Open is coordinated in partnership with The Rotary Club of White Bear Lake and White Bear Events to raise money for the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf – where the need has never been greater. Join us as we begin our second decade and “Claw” our way towards our goal of $2,000,000 worth of food purchased!
Food shelf vegetables
All net proceeds support the White Bear Area Food Shelf.  To date the Bear’ly Open has contributed over $242,000 to the food shelf – that’s $1.94 million worth of food!

We strive to make our Dance and Golf on Ice events as safe and fun as possible for all participants and volunteers. We ask those who are not yet fully vaccinated to wear effective masks at either event whenever you are not consuming food or beverages.

We will continue to monitor the data regarding Covid cases and the guidance of the CDC and State of MN regarding Covid protocols. In the case that we are unable to safely hold an indoor in-person event, we will update our website, Facebook and Instagram pages.  Please check back often.
