A Note of Thanks!

Thank you for a very successful 2014 fund raising summer concert series! We had a blast featuring the 'World's Greatest Tribute Bands' performing the music of some of the most legendary classic rock bands in history! 

We enjoyed re-discovering the mega hits of the 60's, 70's and 80's under the stars while raising funds for the health and sustainability of our beloved mountains. 

We could not do it without YOU, our ticket-buying guests, sponsors, in-kind donors and over 40 volunteers who make this unique concert series one of the best in Southern California.

Your proceeds will help continue the year-round programming we provide at the Big Bear Discovery Center to over 200,000 guests.  Our aim is to connect and engage our youth and adult visitors to help protect and conserve our treasured public lands while building greater stewardship values, respect and appreciation for our mountains.  

Look for our 2015 concert season announcement by February 2015!

We were thrilled to welcome Big Bear Vacations to our 2014 season as our new presenting sponsor along with their incomparable guest value and additional resources they brought to our fund-raising concert series. Many guests experienced their single night or weekend packages by making Music in the Mountains their "Weekend in the Mountains".  Check out the exciting accommodations Big Bear Vacations has to offer; they are top customer rated and at your full service!  Meet our new presenting sponsor!

Together with all of our sponsors, we delivered quality entertainment to the Big Bear Valley while benefitting the health and vitality of the San Bernardino National Forest.
