Kick off the 67th Annual Old Miners’ Days this weekend with the Chili Cook-Off and the 5th annual Outhouse Race!  Both events are Free and are held at the Bartlett Event Lot next to the Visitors Center. 

Big Bear Valley has a rich history of logging, ranching, and mining that has made the mountain Valley a historical treasure for California. With its numerous abandoned mines, ghost towns, romantic and notorious legends, heroes and villains, Big Bear takes to heart its past by celebrating it every summer through Old Miners’ Days.

Come celebrate this time honored tradition with us throughout the month of July!
