$24K Grant Funding for East Big Bear Valley This year, the Chamber successfully applied for a San Bernardino County Tourism Grant to promote our member businesses in the East Valley and received $24K towards this effort.
- Grant money is being used to design and place two welcome signs, one at Division and Big Bear Boulevard and the other at the corner of Big Bear Boulevard and SR 38. These signs will convey a warm welcome to visiting motorists and encourage them to patronize our businesses and discover the outdoor recreation and tourism highlights in the East Valley.
- The second project is the production and distribution of a Business and Tourism Guide for the East Valley. In production now, it will be distributed to all businesses in the East Valley, the Big Bear Visitors Center, and the Big Bear Airport.
- Finally, grant funding was used to re-design the Chamber website, adding this East Valley Business District page and the Tourism Guide, and also to purchase a display kit to promote our business members to the public.
The East Big Bear Valley is home to the private Big Bear Airport, where commuter service will soon begin. The Airport hosts the bi-annual Big Bear Air Show, an ever-popular event that features antique aircraft, kids activities and a great air show.
