mark-your-calendarBig Bear has so many events happening all the time, it can be hard to keep up! On the first Tuesday of every month, we will dedicate Tuesday’s Topic to upcoming events so that you can plan ahead to join us for the fun!

We are gearing up for Winter fun here in Big Bear Lake, but there is still time to explore Big Bear before the snow flies. Wander the quaint streets of the newly renovated Village and enjoy hundreds of unique shops, find the perfect restaurant or enjoy some live music. Sip a coffee or hot chocolate while relaxing by one of the new outdoor fire-pits and take in the beauty of the mountains in the fall.

November is a quiet month here. but there is still plenty to do. Participate in some fun activities (Snow-play is OPEN!) or take part in a special event – it’s up to you. Come on up!!
