Make Music Big Bear


Welcome to Make Music Big Bear!

The line up is all local talent, the venues are our local businesses, and the audience is all of us.

Make Music Big Bear is a live, free musical celebration on June 21, the longest day of the year – the Summer Solstice. Launched in France 1982 as Féte de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries. Make Music Big Bear is participating for our third year.

Are We Growing! This year we have 13 Village businesses hosting over 34 bands/musicians on Village Drive, and Pine Knot Avenue. It’s all happening from 2 to 8 pm on Wednesday, June 21. Busking…. you mean street musicians, yes busking. I think you will find a bit of this also while walking about. This is all for our community enjoyment, so come on into town, enjoy free music, and help us celebrate Make Music Big Bear!

Our hosting venues are: Stella Luna, Oakside Restaurant and Bar, The Breezeway next to Amangela’s Sandwich and Bagel House, Queen Bee, O Koo Rän, Beary Bliss, A Christmas Store N More, Copper Q, Sotheby’s Real Estate, 572 Social Kitchen & Lounge, SoCalResorts/Compass Real Estate, The Bone Yard Bar & Grill, and Nottinghams Tavern Patio.

Once again Nottinghams Tavern Patio will be hosting the popular Open Mic, with varied musicians every 30 minutes. Hey, if you play, sing, humm a toon, come on down and get your name on the list. Share your talent with us all.
