It’s simple – vote for the fattest most winter-prepared bear in the Brooks River corridor. If you love the Brooks Falls bears, this is a lot of fun!

Fat Bear Week is an annual tournament celebrating the success of the bears at Brooks River in Katmai National Park. From September 30 to October 6, your vote decides who is the fattest bear. 

This is a single elimination tournament. For each set of two bears, vote for one who you think is the fattest. The bear with the most votes advances. Only one will receive the title of fattest bear
