August in Big Bear

August is huge in Big Bear.  It’s the month we see some of our favorite activities finally arrive each year.  And with these activities, we usually see a surge in our reservations, so make your plans early to get the best vacation rentals!

Cast political correctness out the window and come celebrate the 15th Annual Big Bear Renaissance Faire.  You’ll find yourself transported back to a simpler time when men were men and turkey legs were the size of your head.  You’ll get to watch the knights in a friendly jousting tournament, and be sure to find the Queen for a special treat.  There’s amazing food, entertainment, and non-stop fun.  It’s an event you’ll return to year after year.  This is one of Big Bear’s most popular events each year, so you’ll want to plan ahead.  The faire runs weekends, August 6-7, 13-14, and 20-21.  Visit this link for more details and to purchase tickets:

Another favorite coming up in August is the 27th annual Antique Car Fun Run over the weekend of the 12th through the 14th.  This annual event is a must-see for all car enthusiasts or anyone who appreciates the history of automobiles.  You’ll get to see some of the finest examples of superb craftsmanship and engineering found anywhere on four wheels.  Meet the owners of these fine automobiles and listen to their stories of discovery and restoration.  You’ll find more than one amazing beauty that spent much of its life hidden away in a barn somewhere before one of these intrepid collectors found it and restored it.  This event is free to the public, so get more details and exhibitor info at this link:

Along with these two big annual events, you’ll have plenty of ongoing events to choose from as well during August.  There are weekly community bike rides, live music on weekends, line dancing and hiking clubs.  Big Bear is a great destination to do some of your favorite things while surrounded with the tremendous natural beauty of the area.
