Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest

Located in the mountain town of Big Bear Lake, our quaint celebration has always been based on the lore of the world’s original Oktoberfest. Over the years, the Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest has become world renown for its own traditions and old-world ambience, celebrating friends, family and good times. A festival like no other, guests are treated to authentic German entertainment; feast on Brats and Knockwursts direct from the German butcher; and enjoy the very same beers poured at Munich’s Oktoberfest for more than 150 years!

55th Annual New Year’s Eve Torchlight Parade at Snow Summit

Watch 200+ skiers and snowboarders light up the night as they make their way down the face of the mountain in the dark with torches to create a spellbinding spectacle of light before the (snow)ball drops. The show will begin around 7PM. After the Torchlight Parade, stick around for a live performance by Digital Underground, most known for the 1990 hit, "The Humpty Dance".
