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.

“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.

“The English Beat” at the Cave

Nov 25, 2016 | 06:30PM – 11:30PM

The English Beat is a band with an energetic mix of musical styles and a sound like no other. The band’s unique sound has allowed it to endure for nearly three decades and appeal to fans, young and old, all over the world.

When The English Beat (known simply as The Beat in their native England) rushed on to the music scene in 1979, it was a time of massive social and political unrest and economic and musical upheaval. This set the stage for a period of unbridled musical creativity, and thanks in large part to the Punk movement and it’s DIY approach to making music, artists like The Beat were able to speak out and speak their mind on the news of the day, as in “Stand Down Margaret”, things that mattered to them and the youth culture, as in “Get A Job”, and universal matters of the heart and soul, as in their classic hits “I Confess” and “Save It For Later”.

The Cave is a new, intimate music venue in Big Bear that promises to bring you up close and personal with its performers. Doors open at 6:30 pm Concert starts at 7:30 pm. Call or visit website for ticket information.

Location: The Cave at 40789 Village Drive, Big Bear Lake, CA 92315

“Los Lobos” at the Cave

Dec 30, 2016 | 06:30PM – 11:30PM

More than three decades have passed since Los Lobos released their debut album, Just Another Band from East L.A. Since then they’ve repeatedly disproven that title—Los Lobos isn’t “just another” anything, but rather a band that has consistently evolved artistically while never losing sight of their humble roots.

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984.Although the album’s name and title song were inspired by a National Geographic article about real life wolves in the wild, the band—David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano and Steve Berlin—saw parallels with their struggle to gain mainstream rock success while maintaining their Mexican roots.

Perez, the band’s drummer, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio.” Three decades, two more Grammys, a worldwide smash single (“La Bamba”) and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well — and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973.

The Cave is a new, intimate music venue in Big Bear that promises to bring you up close and personal with its performers. Doors open at 6:30 pm Concert starts at 8:30 pm. Call or visit website for ticket information.
