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 8 years. 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.
