A BiFest is a one-day festival celebrating bisexuality, with workshops and discussions during the day and social events in the evening, complementing the larger convention BiCon. Currently there have been seven BiFests around the UK since 1999, with the busiest attracting around 130 people.

The first BiFest, in 1999, was a "Festival of Bisexuality", and was combined with a bisexual march through London. However, the idea was not taken up again until 2005, when a new organising team stepped forward to create an annual BiFest in London.

The structure of BiFest is in some ways similar to the earliest BiCons, which were one or two days long and had few program streams.
