Big Bear Old Miners' DaysHistory

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 every summer through Old Miners' Days. These events strive to bring history alive as residents and visitors alike take part in time honored and, sometimes comical, Big Bear Valley traditions and antics.

Festival has a children/youth component.
