About Bear with us Festival

We know what you're thinking—beer isn't just about drinking it alone, right? But we think you'll find that when you drink with people who share your passion for craft brewing and good company, you'll be able to enjoy a different kind of experience. And at the end of the day, isn't that what it's all about?

The Bear With Us Festival is a community-oriented festival initiative which is aimed at unifying people from different ethnic groups to celebrate and have fun with top beer and beverage brands on display. Every December, The Beer With Us Festival (#BWUFest), Nigeria's first of its kind, brings the best scripted live entertainment performances to concertgoers of all demographics, regardless of tribal and social differences.Two of the biggest artists in the country come together to headline the event that is held at one venue for two days.
