Chamber Gala, Big Bear Convention Center, February 23rd
Remember that time when you walked down the red carpet in your finest attire and were blinded by the flashes of the paparazzi cameras? Your date was handsome in his elegant tux and you stunned in that form-fitting royal purple gown that brought out the violet in your eyes. Wait, you’ve never experienced that red-carpet moment? Well, your February visit to Big Bear can change all that! The Chamber Gala is a formal event with silent auctions, haute cuisine, live performances, and of course, that red carpet! While we can’t promise you paparazzi, we can promise a good time and a good deed, as the proceeds go towards scholarships, workforce development programs, and a few other youth-oriented enterprises. Your night living as the Hollywood elite will be one to remember and cherish forever!
23rd Annual Victor Alvarez & Race at Snow Summit, March 9th
From sad events come good deeds and great times. Victor Alvarez was a beloved instructor who died in a skiing accident in 1994, and this ski race was developed in his memory. Featuring a silent auction with proceeds going to the Big Bear Ski Education Foundation, the goodies offered include ski vacations, gift baskets, and so many more wonderful items we just don’t have the time or space to list them all here! Registration starts at 8 AM in the Snow Summit Race Team Office and the races begin at 10 AM. Everyone who can afford the $80 admittance fee for adults and $50 fee for children are welcome to participate! It’s definitely one of the best upcoming events in Big Bear to visit!
The Hunchback of Notre Dame, April 27th, Big Bear Lakes Performing Arts Center
Sometimes all you need to turn an excellent evening into a stellar one is a hearty dinner—we recommend The Peppercorn Grille—and a live performance of The Hunchback of Notre Dame! Ok, that’s a bit specific, but we really think this performance will be the highlight of your vacation, and you really need to see it!
