#BigBearFalltacular


For the true beleafers, this is the best time to visit Big Bear.  As the mountain air turns crisp and cool, golden hues emerge to cast a warm glow over Big Bear Lake making it Southern California’s most popular location to capture autumn’s beauty.  The Falltacular is the celebration of pumpkin spice everything, the glory of sweater weather and all the ways you can enjoy this wonder-fall time of the year.

The amazing change in color can be witnessed from the land, water or air in Big Bear Lake.  Explore the beautiful trails and backroads on foot, mountain bike or jeep; take a boat tour or rent your own and cruise the lake; or soar above the trees by zip line or helicopter.

During the Falltacular, every weekend will feature live music and events.  Starting September 8th, the 47th Annual Oktoberfest, one of the best German celebrations this side of Munich, honors the season on Saturdays and Sundays through November 4th.  In September, you can navigate the Wine Walk in the Village or join the fun at Hot Dawgz & Handrails at Bear Mountain.  The Hearth & Home Tour is a popular October event and the Big Bear Comedy Festival closes out the season on November 9 - 10th. We’ve compiled all the ways to enjoy your favorite fall activities, but don’t wait…the Falltacular is only available for a limited time…so plan a weekend to take advantage of this gourd-ous season in Big Bear Lake.
