Crafts & Cranks Is This Saturday And Fun For The Whole Family

by Rob Ochtera | Jul 05, 2016


Join us and The Big Bear Lake Brewing Company this Saturday for the 2nd Annual Crafts & Cranks Concert/Brewfest/Bike Race/Family Carnival. Our entire Basecamp will transform for a day filled with music, tasting California’s top Craft Brews, bike racing and riding The Hurricane, Ferris Wheel and our Mechanical Bull.  We will also have Bounce Houses, Face Painting, Balloon Animals and more to round out the fun.

When you arrive Saturday you will leave our ticket windows and enter our Exhibitor Space. There you will find California’s top craft breweries sampling their finest brews and leaders from the Mountain Bike Industry, like Trek and Fox, displaying the latest in bike gear and technology. At the top of this space you’ll be looking at our Main Stage where we’ll be rocking out to LIVE music from MainMan, Demrick, Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds and Project NfidelikAh all day long.  If you are looking for a bite to eat our Meadow is where you’ll find the Smokehouse Grill. Grab some BBQ and a table in the Meadow and watch your friends give our Mechanical Bull a try. Looking east from the Meadow you won’t be able to miss our Carnival area where you can take unlimited rides on The Hurricane, check out the view from our 40’ Ferris Wheel, bounce in one of our Bounce Houses or just get your face painted and a balloon animal made. This area is also home to our new Climbing Wall and Euro Bungee which you can purchase tickets for separately at our Ticket Windows. It’s a great day for the entire family.

Sound like fun? You have several ways you may attend. Tickets for Crafts & Cranks are $25 for adults and include concert admission, 20 tasting tickets and a commemorative tasting glass. Tickets for 5-20 year olds are $20 and include concert admission and unlimited carnival rides/activities. Children 4 and younger are free.

If you are racing in the event, your registration includes admission. If you are planning on riding our Scenic Sky Chair, biking in our Mountain Bike Park, climbing on our wall or flipping on our Euro-Bungee- your ticket for that day includes admission to the concert and carnival. If you would like to purchase Tasting Tickets, they will be available inside. Make your plans today to be at the event of the summer and we’ll see you Saturday.
