Big Bear Valley is a world of natural beauty and crisp, clean alpine air. High above the hustle of everyday life, our mountain community provides the ideal getaway for the day or for a long vacation.
An easy drive from virtually anywhere in Southern California, Big Bear Lake offers numerous recreational opportunities - boating, fishing, hiking, camping, mountain biking, horseback riding, skiing, snowboarding, snow-shoeing and more! Big Bear Lake is also host to numerous events throughout the year including Old Miner's Days, Oktoberfest, JazzTrax, car shows, trout classics, rodeos and ski and snowboard competitions.
The Big Bear Valley Event Resource Office, which is located at the Visitors Center in the Village, is Big Bear’s top location for events information and resources. The Office was originally established through a collaborative effort of the Big Bear Chamber of Commerce, the City of Big Bear Lake, the Big Bear Lake Resort Association, and the County of San Bernardino. Its primary goal is to increase economic development and the amount of visitors to the Big Bear Valley thru promoting events. In addition, the Office actively seeks new events for off-peak periods. A board of representatives from the contributing agencies and organizations provides oversight and meets on a bi-monthly basis.
