What is Bearstock?
Mercer University is proud to present another year of Bearstock. Bearstock is put on by QuadWorks, Mercer's student programming board which has been putting on Bearstock for its upcoming 8th year. Each year, QuadWorks hosts various food vendors, bands, and well-known artists for a day of fun and enjoyment. Each of the food vendors cater to a different selection of food items from restaurants throughout the state. Each of the several day bands and headliners cater to a different genre in the hopes of having someone that everyone can enjoy. This event is an outdoor, family-friendly, that is free to all who attend. Tattnall Square Park is an alcohol free area. No alcohol will be allowed.
Tattnall Square park is an alcohol free area. If you bring alcohol on to the park, the police will ask you to pour it out. Coolers are allowed.
