4th of July Rotary BBQ 2017

Annual 4th of July Rotary BBQ

Best View, Best Location


For more than 40 years, the Rotary Club of Big Bear Lake has hosted the Annual July 4 BBQ in conjunction with the Marina Resort on their beautiful shoreline. This event features amazing food prepared by the Barnstorm Cafe and Nottinghams Tavern and is the preferred location due to its outstanding view of the fireworks show, proximity to the village and the ability to leave and re-enter. Don't miss this fun celebratory event that's been an annual tradition for many valley families and visitors.

NOTE: Please bring your own lawn chair and blanket (except for Reserved and VIP seating)
