Willkommen!

This year marks the 48th anniversary of Big Bear’s Oktoberfest. Beer, lederhosen, sauerkraut, polka, and of course, the chicken dance. There’s something for everyone!10010661_R_OKTOBERFEST_0904

The Big Bear Oktoberfest is a place of fun. In the mood to dance? You’re in the right place! Participate in (or watch) polkas, macaranas, circle dances, the chicken dance and more. There are plenty of Gaudi’s (Hostesses/Hosts) that will teach you. When you’re all polka’d out, take a stroll outside and visit the Budenstrasse (Avenue of the Booths). This area features games and vendors to entertain the entire family. You can even get your palm read! Do you have little ones in your family? The Kinder Garten features bounce houses, petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, airbrush tattoos and carnival games.

Feeling competitive? Enter one of the free contests. Saw a log, hold some steins, or slam an O’Doul’s and enjoy the admiration and fame!

The food at Oktoberfest is varied as well. There is, of course all of the traditional German fare such as brats, pretzels and pickled pig’s feet, as well as the Cafe Americana which has burgers, onion rings, tacos, nachos and more.

And finally, the beer (or as the Germans spell it, bier) .There are two main inside bars and two outside bier gardens – the Warsteiner Bier Garten and the Sports Garten. The Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest pours both German and American beers as well as wine, soft drinks, coffee, tea, water and sports drinks.

The Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest is open weekends from noon to midnight September 8th through November 3rd.

So book a cabin today with RS Vacations and take part in this fun, fall tradition before it is gone for another year! Don’t forget to pack the lederhosen and bring your stein!!

The 2nd Annual Ryan Hall “Conquer the Wall” takes place on August 11th with proceeds to benefit the BBHS Cross Country Program

Ryan grew up only 5 minutes away from Snow Summit and incorporated weekly 1 mile timed runs up “The Wall” ski run.  The current high school cross country team in Big Bear still utilizes this course every summer for their training, hoping to reach the heights that Ryan Hall established.  Three State Champions later….it seems to be working!

Please also note that “Conquer the Wall” is asking for donations of used running/basketball/soccer shoes that will help local fundraising efforts in partnership with Angel Bins . During the race, we will be taking donations of athletic shoes – running, basketball, or soccer cleats – that are still in good condition.  For more information on Angel Bins please Click Here

“Visions” Rush Tribute at the Cave

Aug 31, 2018 | 06:30PM – 11:30PM

We have a VISION to bring the world renowned RUSH concert to the masses. Since the announcement that Rush has officially retired from the touring scene, their diehard fans the world over, are in need of their fix of live Rush music. While many tributes find it necessary to get the “look” of the band just right with wigs and other attire, Visions believes that the music is #1. The common Rush Head is very skeptical of anyone attempting to reproduce Rush music with any proficiency, not to mention very quick to point out ANY mistakes. With this in mind, and being die hard Rush fans ourselves, the choice to make sure every nuance of a song, from samples to vocal harmonies to analog keyboards, is the priority.

A Visions show is a state of the art experience that should be seen by Rush fans worldwide. It is our dream, and our mission, to do just that.
