The Big Bear Old Miners Association

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 it every summer through Old Miners’ Days. Events begin Memorial Day and run through July. These events strive to bring history alive as residents and visitors take part in time honored and sometimes comical Big Bear Valley traditions and antics.
