Big Bear Lake hosts its annual Oktoberfest, which takes place at the resort's Convention Center. This Bavarian-style celebration features America's highest elevation biergarten; authentic German food, music, and dance groups; activities, including America's only stein-holding contests; and a fun zone for children and families. A gift store on location sells silly hats, glasses, beads, steins and other objects. The event includes fantastic mountain contests such as log sawing.
